Each month, SCREENDOOR brings Columbia's emerging storytellers to share true stories--without notes--before a live audience and judging panel. We were thrilled by the stories and storytellers we had for "First," our kick-off event last month, and we're proud to bring the competition back for December's "Busted" event. Bring a story about a time when you were/got/caused-something-to-get busted and compete against our talented storytellers. We'll also be featuring live music--keep checking us out for updates or contact screendoorcolumbia@gmail.com for more information.
