Group to host story slam at Peninsula College

PORT ANGELES — The Story People of Clallam County will offer a participatory Studium Generale at 12:35 p.m. Thursday in The Little Theater at Peninsula College.

The event at the college campus at 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. in Port Angeles is free and open to the public.

For more than a decade, The Story People of Clallam County have given an introduction to the Forest Storytelling Festival at Peninsula College.

This year, they are inviting students and other audience members to participate in the telling.

They will introduce a form of storytelling, called the story slam. A theme will be announced in advance, and participants who wants to tell a true, six-minute story from life related to the theme can throw their names into the hat.

The emcee will draw names, and those selected will take the stage to tell their story. Most slams feature judges who score the stories, and declare a winner at the end of the event.

However, the “Slam at Studium” will not be judged.

Professor Lara Starcevich has been collaborating with Erran Sharpe of Story People of Clallam County, to bring students in the college drama classes to the stage. In addition, audience members may be tapped for their “telling” abilities.
