Above is a video project I did for a class–the same one this blog is for, actually.

Last Friday I had the absolute pleasure of attending and documenting the ETSU Tale Tellers’ Story Slam. It’s a competitive storytelling event that the Tale Tellers host three times a semester on the third Friday of every month.

The theme for the stories on Friday night was “Runaway.” Performers told stories about running away from home, running from problems, running from bad dates and everything in between. There were some current ETSU students, some alumni, and even faculty members.

Watch the video to meet a few people that were there and learn more about the event. I recommend catching a Story Slam next semester. This fall, they will all be held at the Next Door in downtown Johnson City.
