Things to Know About Bellingham Story Hour:

 

  1. Workshops held on first and third Tuesday of each month from 7pm – 9pm (suggested $20 or pay-what-you-can donation to workshop facilitator)

  2. Slams will be held the 4th Tuesday of the month from 7pm – 9pm. Subjects will be posted on website calendar.

  3. Bellingham Story Hour Slams will ask for a $5 entrance fee to cover the cost of space and any equipment rentals. Hosts and storytellers are volunteering time and their craft during these gatherings.

 

Basic Guidelines for Storytellers:

  1. Slams will have themes chosen ahead of time and will select performers who submit their name into a random drawing process.

  2. Performers for Slams will be chosen randomly from participants who self-submitted for the evening

  3. All stories will be no longer than ten minutes with a time moderator to help folx stay in their time limit

  4. Please offer content warnings for any seriously triggering subjects presented in your story

  5. Censoring will not be employed, but if a story being presented is clearly breaking Community Agreements or causing clear harm to the audience, the performer will be asked to leave the stage and future performances may depend on a prescreening from the host.
