Story League Contests now happen in Virginia at the Shirlington location of our partners Busboys and Poets.

Three judges will consider all story submissions before the contest begins and decide which 9 they most wish to hear. Tellers have a maximum of 7 minutes to tell a true, personal story. At 6 minutes you will receive a signal that you only have 1 minute left. No notes or props may be used onstage. The winner will be announced at the end of the night and will receive $100 cash as a prize. The audience will also select its favorite! The winners of our monthly contests go on to compete in Tournaments where the prize jumps to $250.
