Storytellers who have earned a slot in the GRAND SLAM are: Jane Butler, Tim Megaw, Marty Hoban, Diane Yannick, Kevin Ginsberg, Mike Mauger, Justin Daniel, Steve Clark, Terry Heyman, Chris Rich, Jill Salkin, Jeff Hazelwood and Luanne Sims.

The theme of the 2014 GRAND SLAM IS “Fine Line,” as in, there’s often a fine line between right and wrong, between good and bad, between good luck and bad luck.

wcss-adFor the GRAND SLAM, we will be strictly enforcing the 5 minute rule. Each Storyteller will be signaled at 4 minutes and 30 seconds and then again at 5 minutes. Any story over 5 minutes and 30 seconds will not be counted in the final scores.

Also, at the GRAND SLAM, we will be celebrating the publication of West Chester Story Slam – Selected Stories 2010-2014. These forty stories were selected from the first five years of West Chester Story Slam and include classics that you’ll want to share with friends. Copies will be on sale the night of the GRAND SLAM. This Christmas season, copies will be available at Chester County Book Company, BookPlace, and Amazon.

We hope to see you on Tuesday, November 11th for what is sure to be a memorable night of storytelling, and join us afterwards for an after-party on the second floor of Side Bar.
