Call for Story Slam Participants

As part of the Joy Project, WDS is hosting two brief Story Slam sessions at the WDS Forum on Friday, January 31, 2020 and Saturday, February 1, 2020. We are looking for stories that that encompass the theme "How You Have Found Joy at Work."

What is a Story Slam?
A Story Slam is a live storytelling event open to participants to share their experiences around the theme "How You Have Found Joy at Work." Each participant will have 5-6 minutes to tell their own personal story having, seeking, giving, or receiving joy while at work. What has made you happy? What have you found can make others happy? Perhaps joy found unexpectedly? Whatever your personal spin is on “Joy at Work” we want to hear about it. Because we have limited time, we request the Story Slam candidates send a 1 minute video of part of your story you will tell to us at the Forum. Let your joyful creativity flow!

How to Become a Story Slam Candidate
1. Review the topic "How You Have Found Joy at Work"
2. Create a 1 minute video preview of your personal story for consideration
3. Submit your video by December 18, 2019 to Maggie MacGillis:

Story Slam Selection Process
The WDS Forum Program Committee will review the submitted videos and select participants to present a 5-6 minute story at the 2020 WDS Forum. Participates will be notified in early January.
