Vote now for Season 9 Themes

It’s that time again! Please help pick themes for the regular season StorySlams.

The following list was generated by the Slam Lords (a.k.a. Programming Team), a group of volunteers who plan our monthly Slams. They selected these from a master list of themes suggested by audience members. Now, they’d like to hear what you think so please vote!

Season 9 theme voting open now through midnight July 11!Ask you review, please ask yourself: Can I come up with at least one true story from my life related to this theme? We want themes that are broad enough to allow for a variety of narratives and emotions yet specific enough to inspire lots of stories. Yep, it’s a tough balance!

Once voting closes, we’ll use as many of the top rated themes as we can. Last year, we managed to use 7 of them! The others were selected in conjunction with Event Partners, so in the end, all the themes come from the community.

We're picking Season 9 themes! Which themes make you think of lots of personal stories? Vote for up to three. Poll closes July 11!
