Story Expo Pre-Show Party & StoryBANG


    Story Expo NY Pre-Show Party

    We invite all of our attendees, speakers and panelists to join us Friday night before the start of Story Expo for a fun, casual pre-show party near Times Square to get to know one another.

    And take part in Story Expo Story Bang! We will announce a topic when you arrive (“courage,” “grudges,” “changing attitude,” “narcissism,” “being a writer,” etc.), and willing participants will put their name in a hat for a chance to present their story onstage. If chosen, you will get two minutes to tell a cohesive (and true!) story—with beginning, middle and end—that falls under the theme. The story (and its telling) is scored from 1 to 10 by our expert panel of judges (a pre-selected group of speakers from the weekend), with feedback from the audience. It’s a friendly competition for people to have fun and help shape your storytelling skills for the weekend! And the quick turnover (fifteen storytellers at two minutes each) will keep it fast and furious.

    The winner will receive $1,500 worth of consultations from a pick of experts.
