On Monday, April 6, from 2:10 to 3:10, Burlington will host a Story Slam workshop with Mass Mouth. This organization came out to BHS last year to discuss the elements of powerful storytelling. Mass Mouth also hosts the annual StoriesLive competition for high school students, where students tell original stories; it’s like a poetry slam, but for narratives. The winners receive cash prizes, and last year, Rosemary Nabukeera (Class of 2014) won first place in her grade, and earned $1000, while Patrick Hoarty (Class of 2015) earned $500 for his work. The workshop is limited to 25 students, so if you are interested, please email Mrs. Janovitz (firstname.lastname@example.org) immediately.
This year’s slam competition will be on May 2nd
