You are invited to an evening of original stories on April 13th at the Cottage Bistro, 4470 Main Street. The event is hosted by Vancouver Story Slam which is organized by Susan Cormier and hosted by Bryant Ross. Ten storytellers will take the stage and share their original stories with you. Those participating in April include Alexis Sugden, Buck Moody, David DJ Roy, Devon More, Humaira Hamid, Jim Murray, JP Lorence, Kathrin Lake, Leslie Stark and Mark Hughes. The event is $5 and that also gets you a ballot giving you the opportunity to vote on your favourite story. There are cash prizes awarded to the winners. Those winners are in turn invited to participate at their annual storytelling championship finals. The event on April 13th gets underway at 8:00 pm. If you wish to learn more about this event or participate in an upcoming event, email them directly at Vancouverstoryslam@yahoo.com. This is a monthly event and if you can’t make this one, future dates are posted on their Facebook page.
