I’m on the board of Story Arts of Minnesota, which has been mentioned in previous blog posts (most of my contribution to the board is being shirtless and making crude jokes during meetings). Since other folks have talked a bit about what we do, I’m not going to belabor that point. Instead, I’m going to invite you to get involved.
We’re a working board, which means the shit we can do is limited by the time, attention, and energy of a handful of people. If you’re a member of the storytelling and spoken word community of Minnesota, we’d love for you to get more involved and help us do more to give back to that community.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you’d like to volunteer at an event, serve on a committee, or be available for odd jobs. Or, if you’ve got a great idea for events, programming, outreach, or any other project you think would help the storytelling community, email us and we can see if SAM can help.

A lot of folks come to story slams and think that if they want to keep telling stories, they’ll forever be judged with numbers and capped at five minutes and thirty seconds. Not so!
If you’re looking for longer-form storytelling on a regular basis, Word Sprout has a bunch of great offerings that I won’t get into because information is available in the banner just above this post.
