THU. SEP. 21 // 7 PM
Pivot, a live storytelling series in Spokane, invites you to their second open mic story slam. Are you eager to tell a story of your own? Community members are invited to tell a true story from their own lives (up to 5 minutes long) in front of an audience. If you'd like to tell a story, show up a little early to throw your name in a hat, and as many storytellers as time allows will have an opportunity to share.
Last year we launched Spark Salon, our annual fundraiser and paddle raise, to much success. We can't wait to share our 2018 plans! Stay tuned for a date and an announcement of special guests.
