Spillit Center Stage
Any individual interested in telling their story can submit a summary via email. Stories are between seven and ten minutes long and follow the theme chosen for the event. After reviewing the submissions, storytellers are invited to a workshop where they practice their stories and give one another supportive feedback. They reunite the evening of their event accompanied by a musical guest to present their truths. It is truly magical for all who witness. An audio recording documents the evening and is shared via Spillit’s website or as a podcast through iTunes.
Spillit Story Slam
It’s the friendliest competition in town. It’s also a spontaneous, interactive evening where you have the opportunity to share your five minutes with a room full of kind people. Whether you plan in advance or find yourself inspired by the evening, you’ll drop your name in the bucket. We’ll draw up to ten names and each person has five minutes to tell their story. Three judges score the stories on a scale of 1-10 based on content and presentation. No props or notes are allowed. Simultaneously, the audience anonymously answers questions that are read aloud by the host between stories. After basking in triumphant glory, the winner is invited to compete in the Story Grand Slam November 20, 2015 for the title of Grand Master Storyteller of Memphis.
