Write-in: Gimme Your Winter Break Stories


Ayo Wesleyan. I’m just gonna leave this here…

Tell me a story from your Winter Break.

Here’s the link.

Feel free to leave winter-break-themed links/procrastination devices in the comments.

In these break times, I know some of us tend to feel lonely or lost or down. or maybe not! either way, sneeze is always lounging around near a computer. #dontpanicitsonlyamonth


Do you have a story to tell?

Fans of spoken word, slam poetry and open-mic nights are invited to participate in Wesleyan’s newest literary event- WESTORIES. The winner and runner-up of our campus storytelling competition will go on to compete against representatives from seven other schools this April at the Connecticut Storytelling Association’s “Campus Slammer.”

What is a story slam?
-Out of everyone who signs up, 10 contestants will be chosen from a hat
-Contestants have 5 minutes to tell a true story without notes or props
-Stories should be related to the night’s theme: “Winners and Losers”
-Whoever best tells their story will go on to represent Wesleyan against other Connecticut schools

The stories can be humorous, poignant, thought provoking, revealing, or anything just begging to be told.

Come tell a story, be a judge, or just enjoy some coffee while cheering on your friends.
