In collaboration with those great folks at the TMI Project, the Woodstock Writers Festival presented our first (but not last!) rock and roll story slam. The rule was simple: read a story that contained the line 'By the time I got to Woodstock'.
The story had to be under 31/2 minutes, the time of an old rock and roll song. There was a gong involved, and people started reading faster and faster, to avoid it. The winner went home with a cool Woodstock Writers Festival Boat Bag, chock full with books by Woodstock Writers Festival authors, generously donated by Woodstock's own independent bookstore, The Golden Notebook.
The jury? Rock and roll royalty: Michael Lang, producer of all 3 Woodstock concerts; Johanna Hall, writer of some of the most popular songs in history, including Still The One and Dance With Me; Catherine Sebastian, current and historical music photographer; and Ben Vita, one of Woodstock's finest legacy singer/songwriters.Read excerpts from the Rock & Roll Story Slam
