<h3>First Person Arts StorySlams: NSFW</h3>

A StorySlam is more than a storytelling competition. It’s an invitation to share five minutes of your life in a room full of people who appreciate a well-told tale. Audience storytellers take to the stage with real life stories on the theme of the night. Winners get $100 prize and the chance to compete in the season finale Grand Slam. Got five minutes? Come and lend an ear, or share an experience.

This month's theme is NSFW!

<h3>Grand Slam</h3>

StorySlam winners each earn a spot in the Grand Slam lineup at the end of the season. At the Grand Slam, the season’s top tale spinners compete for the title of “Best Storyteller in Philadelphia,” free Slam admission for life, a sparkly microphone trophy, and a $250 cash prize.
