WordXWord wraps up 2015 with a Story Slam at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 20, at the Whitney Center for the Arts, 42 Wendell Ave. Storytellers are invited to share their five-minute true stories related to the theme "strange holiday."

A story slam is an open-mic storytelling competition open to anyone with a relevant five-minute story to share. Stories are scored by volunteer judges from the audience.

Pre-register for one of the limited number of storytelling spots at http://wXw365.org/story.

Admission is free and open to all. Parents of younger children are advised that stories may include content more appropriate for mature audiences.
