F. A. Q.

What does my membership support?

Your membership helps amplify underrepresented voices and stories – through affinity group storytelling workshops, community collaborations, and free tickets for folks that couldn’t afford them. These efforts help more Milwaukeeans to meaningfully connect through personal stories – but don’t take it from us! As one participant said, “Breaching barriers between strangers in your community can be hard. Ex Fabula offers a safe, meaningful way to do that.”

How long is my membership valid?

Memberships are valid for 12 months. Then you renew, so you don’t miss out!

How do I use my StorySlam tickets?

  • Members are issued credits that they can use to reserve advance tickets to regular StorySlams. Then, check in at Will Call at least 15 minutes before showtime.
  • Or, you can show up and check-in with Will Call to use your member credit, provided that there is still room.
  • Either way, consider arriving early, as seating is General Admission.

What’s an EXperience?

These special events – formerly known as “Secret Fabula” – are held about 3 times per year and are free for members. These intimate, experiential events take you behind the scenes of unique Milwaukee locations such as Saint Kate Arts Hotel, Freight 38, Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge, Brass Rooster and the Hen House hat shops, Sugar Bee Farm, Shaker’s Cigar Bar, and Turner Hall. Enjoy an evening of storytelling and adventure at an EXperience event.

Can I bring guests to events with me?

Absolutely! If you have enough member credit for 6 tickets, you can reserve yourself a ticket for 6 events, use it all at one event with 5 friends, or anything in between.

Can I give my member benefits to someone else?

Sorry, member benefits are not transferable – except for the Guest passes. You can gift an entire membership to someone else though – see below!

How do the Guest passes work?

You’ll receive a coupon code that you can give to a friend, so they can reserve a free ticket to a Slam – even if you’re not going.

How can I give a membership to someone else? 

Aww, you’re so generous and thoughtful! Just select the membership you’d like to gift, and then include the following details in the notes field at checkout:

  • Recipient name, address, phone and email
  • Where we should send the member welcome packet – to you or to the gift recipient?
  • If we’re mailing to the recipient, is there a message you’d like us to include?
  • Would you like this to arrive as soon as possible, or only after a certain date?

We will manually transfer the membership to your recipient, send you a tax form, and send out a member welcome packet however you indicated that we should.

Do your events have age restrictions?

It varies. Some events are held in bars (21+), while other venues like Turner Hall allow minors. In either case, stories may contain adult content, so please use your discretion.

Are these benefits subject to change?

Wow, are you a lawyer? Good question. As it happens, yes, they are subject to change.
