10 STORYTELLERS

TOTAL GLORY

 

WHO WE ARE

Edmonton Story Slam is an open mic storytelling competition open to anyone with a five minute story to share. Come tell a story or just enjoy the show!

Our mandate is to provide a welcoming environment for writers to share their creative work in an atmosphere free of censorship. 

Story Slam is a grassroots organization run by volunteers who love stories. Edmonton Story Slam Society was launched in Feb, 2006 and officially became a not for profit organization in 2008. 


Story Slam respectfully acknowledges and is grateful to gather on Treaty 6 territory, which is valued as a meeting place and home to many Indigenous nations, including the Cree, Nakota-Sioux, Tsuu-T’ina, Blackfoot, and Métis as well as many others. We extend our hand in respect and friendship to these nations and strive to honour the tradition of sharing stories.
