RED Thread Stories

DSCF4772Red Thread Stories produces and hosts live storytelling slam events in Southeast Michigan. Please re-visit our website in late summer 2014 for information on upcoming events. Season II closed on Thursday, April 3, 2014 with a fantastic SLAMPIONSHIP Event that featured winning storytellers from the first six regular events of our season.  Stay tuned for updates on Season III beginning in October of 2014.

Join us for a unique, entertaining and guaranteed wonderful night of stories presented in straight up, spoken and very real fashion!  Listen to our wonderful storytellers share their true life stories live.  Think Storyokee® not Karaoke!

DSCF4751Since we often get this question we thought we’d answer it for the nervously curious. “Do I have to tell a story?” No, absolutely not.  Only those who put their names into the hat will tell stories and at our Slampionship event only the winning storytellers from our first six Season II shows will share a tale.

If you’re considering telling a story next season please remember that all stories must be 5 minutes or less.  Our monthly theme is posted for guidance and brainstorming but if the RED Thread of story leads you in another direction that’s just fine with us.  Our objective is to encourage storytellers to bring stories that are meaningful, and stories that expand the hearts and minds of those of us in the audience.  If you’ve got a tale, bring it and tell it! DSCF4745a

Stories are judged by our Audience & Expert panel.  Stories will be evaluated on how well they are told, whether or not they fit the format of story, and on whether or not they are a truthful and personal event experienced by the storyteller.  No trips to outer space in an alien ship or that famous old family favorite tale that Uncle Harold used to tell at parties.  The stories must be true and yours!


Come and listen to a wonderful collection of stories.  Join us for a most unique, engaging, and guaranteed entertaining experience that will have you coming back for more!
