Welcome to the York Story Slam podcast, where we feature select stories from our monthly open mic storytelling events in York, Pennsylvania.
The theme for our September story slam was HOMESICK. We heard stories about missing home, redefining one’s sense of home, and one about staying home sick from school. In the end, our winner was Sarah Chain, who shared her story about saying goodbye to her grandparents’ home. Sarah earned a spot in our Grand Slam in November. Next up we have Thaddeus Abbott, who talks about finding an answer to the complicated question "Where are you from?" Our final story on this month’s podcast comes from Joanna Kopinetz. Joanna shared her story about traditions around food, and how she brought some of them with her when she immigrated to the U.S.
All the winners from this year’s open mic story slam events will return to compete for the title of Best Storyteller in York at our Grand Slam event in November.
A big thank-you to our 2021 sponsor, KBG Injury Law, whose generous support is making this season possible.
We hope to see you virtually or on stage soon! Thanks for listening.
