The theme for this slam is "Fooled!"

Pinestories is a competitive, nonfiction storytelling event. Each storyteller will tell their true story on the theme "Fooled!" in under 12 minutes from memory. We have 6 storyteller slots available for this event. If you'd like to compete, please FB message or send an email to with your story's pitch. The pitch should be no longer than a tweet. Storyteller slots fill up quickly, so email us soon if you'd like to compete!

Judges will be selected before the show and will submit their anonymous scores at the conclusion. Scores will be tallied and the winner anounced at the end of the show. Each winner is eligible to compete at the Pinestories Grandslam at the end of the season for prizes!

Admission is $3 unless you're telling a story or volunteering. We can always use volunteers to help take door and to tally scores. Please email us at if you'd like to volunteer.
