The next story slam at the Blue Chair Cafe is on Wednesday, December 12th. The 40 Below Project will be there to provide a little extra incentive for anybody who has an Edmonton winter story that they want to share. We will be offering a bonus cash prize of $100 to any story that we think would fit nicely into the 40 Below Project. This isn’t just one prize either. We are looking for great stories so if there are ten great stories that can fit into the anthology then we’ll be awarding ten prizes of $100 each. The usual judging will take place and the winner can pick up all the audience donations for the night. We won’t be judging the story slam but we will be there to award any stories that we’d like to use. So even if you lose you can win and even if you win you can win even more if your story is good enough.
The Blue Chair Cafe is located at 9624 76 ave in Edmonton. The story slam starts at 8:00pm but you should be there at 7 if you want to sign up. Spots are limited. So if you have a story to share and think it might just also fit into the 40 Below Project then I hope to see you next week. This is the one and only time to get personal feedback on your stories before the December 31st deadline for submissions.
We are receiving new things each day and the pieces are getting stronger. Thanks to those who have already submitted and thanks to those who are still working on their stories and getting ready to send them in.
See you next week at the Blue Chair Cafe.
