Willimantic, Conn. The Campus Slammer, a statewide Connecticut story slam event, will take place on April 9 from 7-9 p.m. in Room 110 of Webb Hall at Eastern Connecticut State University. Anyone affiliated with a college or university in Connecticut is invited to participate.
Participants need only to put their name in a hat to "slam the story down" and share a five-minute personal story on the selected theme. No reading from a script is allowed.
Several other Connecticut colleges and universities including the University of Connecticut, Western Connecticut State University, Manchester Community College and the University of Hartford, are holding their own slam events. Two finalists from each slam will move on to the Campus Slammer Finals at Connecticut College in New London on April 27. The final winners will receive free entry to the Connecticut Storytelling Festival.
