is a highly acclaimed and long-running spoken word salon created, hosted, and curated by Wendy Hammers. Now in our second smash decade, and having presented over 100 original evenings of story and music, Tasty Words serves up hilarious and horrifying real life stories read and performed by the people who wrote them.


As the creator and curator of Tasty Words, I am driven to present dynamic, hilarious, heartfelt evenings of storytelling from the best in town, making the world a smaller, sweeter place. And as a woman who is a sucker for a good cry and big laughs, I pour over the hundreds of submissions I receive each year from tellers known and unknown, to bring you the stories that shift my perceptions; stories that open my heart and make me breathe deeper. I collect these stories and bring them to you. It is my profound pleasure to do so.

Tasty Words is currently on hiatus until 2018. Watch this space for new shows to be announced here.
