Northport Story Slam: Coincidences

Flyer for the Northport Story Slam. Info in text.

Come to the Next Northport Story Slam: Coincidences!

Live Storytelling to Light Up Hearts and Minds! Inspired by The Moth Radio Hour, Elizabeth Alexander has been organizing storytelling events in Northport Village and the surrounding area. In crafting these “Northport Story Slams,” she is creating opportunities for the community to connect and to be inspired. Illustrating in yet another way the talent and passion of our community, these have been FANTASTIC!
 
Moth-style storytelling is a genre of personal narrative stories about an experience that took place in the storyteller’s life. The stories are crafted, planned, and told (not read) before a live audience. It’s a wonderful art form that allows folks to connect at a very human level.
 
These are super fun and a wonderful way to get to know our neighbors, and build community. We were thrilled to get to host one at The Firefly and are excited for this next one!
 
You can follow them on Facebook, and check out their new website: www.northportvillagestorytelling.com. They were also recently featured in Northport Neighbors Magazine!
