Story Slam 2018
Yorkton Story Slam is a program presented through the partnership of the Parkland Writers Alliance, the Yorkton Public Library and the Yorkton Arts Council.
The story-telling competition will be held on October 17, 2018 in the Yorkton Public Library.
Each session consists of 10 writers presenting their stories. All stories presented must be original and unpublished. Authors each have five minutes to read or tell their stories. After 5 minutes a one point penalty is issued. After 7 minutes the author is gonged and asked to leave the podium. There is no age limit or theme limits, but keep in mind that we intend this event to be family friendly.
Stories are judged by a panel of five local celebrity judges. Marks are issued out of 10 for each story. The marks are added together for the final mark.
The winner will be awarded a $100 prize, featured on Access7, CTV News at Noon, in Yorkton This Week newspaper, on the Yorkton Arts Council website and more!
So, get out your pens, pencils and laptops and start writing!
