Global Story Slam: Submit Your Story

The deadline to submit a story pitch for the Global Story Slam has passed. To RSVP to attend the Global Story Slam, visit the Global Story Slam RSVP page.

Bringing communities together and sharing experiences are just some of the reasons why #GlobalStoriesMatter.

During the Global Story Slam, BU students, faculty, and staff will have the opportunity to tell their global story in front of a live audience. The stories are short – 5 to 8 minutes in length – and centered on the theme Lost in Translation. They can be funny, moving, enlightening, thought-provoking, or surprising – but they must be true. The audience will score the stories, and the storyteller with the highest score at the end of the evening will be awarded the coveted Global Story Slam trophy.

The 2nd Annual Global Story Slam will be held on Wednesday, November 14 in HAR105 (the Questrom School of Business Auditorium) at 7:00 PM.
