Doors open at 5pm for FREE food and drink and an hour to mingle. The story slam starts at 6pm. We will also be celebrating local independent fiction publication, The Cantabrigian Magazine, with a reading from the next issue. It'll be a great mash-up of business and tech innovators, storytellers, and literary mavens – in short, an evening of people who play.
