"What is a Story Jar?


Hello, I’m Stef. In our home we have a jar. It’s filled with pieces of paper. On each piece of paper is written a title of a story. A story that is yet to be told. We call it the story jar. Every home should have one.


When my children go to bed at night, sometimes I pluck a story title from the jar and just make something up. It’s become one of my favourite things to do, and my children love the stories I make up for them. Recently I’ve been recording the stories and I’ve had friends tell me how much they enjoy listening to the things I make up."


Access the site to find out more about this project for Tate Modern, where you:

  • Pluck a random story title from the jar
  • Record yourself telling your story
  • Include the name of the provided character
  • Upload it
Kim Zinke (aka Gimli Goose)'s insight:

What a great project and a great story behind where she got the names of the characters.


The story jar concept is something you could do at home.  Take an ordinary jar, fill it with story prompts (look to this site for some ideas to get you started), and on a regular basis, pull a slip of paper out and practice your storytelling skills.

Slam Rules & Storytelling Tips | Scranton StorySlam | How to find and tell your story | Scoop.it

The Scranton StorySlam is a unique storytelling competition at which ten storytellers each share a true, five-minute, personal story inspired by the evening’s theme. Stories are told without notes, allowing the storytellers to connect with the audience in a spontaneous and authentic way.


If you're interested in starting up a storytelling night in your area, this is a good site to check out.  On this page, Scranton has compiled what they've learned at previous StorySlams and from various other storytelling organizations.


They have also provided a list of storyslams in other cities.
