Want to share a story in the next New West Story Slam??? Check out Way Off-Broadway Wednesday’s “Notes” (link on left of FB page) for Rules and guidelines on how to apply for the lottery: just make sure you get your name in the draw BEFORE the 1st of the month.

W.O.W. would like to credit Susan Cormier of the Vancouver Story Slam (Canada’s LONGEST RUNNING Story Slam) and her team for generously sharing their resources, protocols, and event format. Without Susan’s invaluable support and expertise, this lil baby New West Story Slam would never have been born.
