Campus Slammer Season 2 Begins!!

The Connecticut Storytelling Center is very excited to bring season 2 of Campus Slammer to college campuses around Connecticut.

 Colleges can sign up with us by contacting Carolyn Stearns at

We have room for a couple of last minute entries as all local slams must be over before the finals on April 28, 2012

A local Campus Slammer can be held during a club meeting, class, in a coffee shop or  other space frequented by students.  Students tell a 5 minute personal story in competition. There is a theme for each campus and the students are competing locally for  the 2 spots that move on to the finals. Those finalists receive Campus Slammer t-shirts and other prizes as well as a free pass to the entire CT. Storytelling Festival!!!! I'm thinking some of those workshops will help those stories  in the finals, which will be that night the last event of the day at the CT Storytelling festival April 28th!!

                                                         Got a Brilliant Idea for a Story?
Check out your campus theme and twist an event that stands out in your mind to fit the theme, then tell it just like you were telling a group of friends at a party! You could win a prize!

Got Campus Spirit?  These Schools do - WCSU, ECSU, Conn College, U-Hartford, Uconn

( QVCC and CCSU have  committed to 2013 Campus Slammer)
