Listening hard! Hosts Alyssa Glass, Lisa Heinlein, and attentive audience member Caitlin Watkins appear quite captivated!

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, but there were some hard-core GEMS at the Story Slam last night! We celebrated our third slam of the semester *Rocks and Hard Places* hosted by the hilarious duo Lisa Heinlein (Pz ’13) and Alyssa Glass (Pz ’16). Between stories of rocky times, silly voices, super mature hikers, swollen fingers, roller-bladers to the rescue, adventures in J-tree, special sandwiches, gleaming blue stones, dinosaur eggs and more, we also had the pleasure of hearing story-shorts answering the prompt *tell us about a time you rocked it*.

I hope you’ll join us for the next slam, *Losing It* – from lost patience to tempers, sore losers to getting lost, losing games to losing out to losing marbles, you’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain from sharing a story! It’s at 9 pm (8:30 for cookies) on Thursday, April 18th. We’re actively looking for first, second, and third-year hosts for our final few slams, so swing by one of our LitPo meetings (Sundays at 9 pm in the back classroom), if you’re interested in hosting or helping us plan these and other fun events!

Finally, don’t forget to check out The Moth – the fantastic organization that inspires these Slams. They have a free podcast (downloadable from itunes), and lots of events in LA and other US cities. Click the link for more info!
