At our monthly Story Contests, we bring in a special host, often from out of town and usually a comedian and/or storyteller, to run the show. And we use a panel of expert judges to decide whose story wins $100.
Every 3rd Wednesday of the month, Story League holds a Story Contest at Busboys and Poets 14th/V Sts. in Washington, D.C. Anyone is invited to submit a story idea (click "Submit a Story" in the main nav bar above) before or at the start of the contest. Here are some previous contestants.
