Tell a Story at a Big Blue Door Jam!

jamCharlottesville’s celebrated true stories show returns for its third year with an amazing monthly array of the funny, the moving, and the bizarre! The only thing it’s missing is you! Would you like to tell a story at a Big Blue Door Jam?

Here’s how you do it:


  • First, come to a Jam, if you haven’t already, so you know how it works.
  • Second, email and write “Sept Jam” or “Nov Jam” or whatever the month is in your subject line (so we can easily keep track of who is doing what), and in the email include:
    • 1-3 sentence bio
    • photo (if you don’t use facebook or have a facebook photo that is recognizable)
    • 1-3 sentence summary of your story.
  • Third, look over our guidelines and, if you wish, a little storytelling advice.

That’s it. Also, we ask that storytellers not tell stories in back-to-back months. Below are the themes for September, October, and November!
