Started by Orchid Burnside & Sonia Farmer, the Illiterati Story Slam was a monthly event where storytellers took to the stage to share tales under a chosen theme for the top prize. It took place throughout 2014, culminating in a grand slam where the winner, Tina Johnson, received a chapbook deal with Poinciana Paper Press. Her collection is forthcoming this December 2015.

The Story Slam was kindly hosted every month at Doongalik Studios. DJ Amero provided sick beats and Orchid Burnside was the hoestess with the mostest.
