What is a Story Slam? A story slam is a contest of stories by known and undiscovered talent. Themes were posted on our events pages (www.massmouth.com) and story slammers signed up on the night to tell a 5-minute short story on the evening's theme. Ten names were drawn at random from a box. A team of 5 volunteer judges - interested amateurs, storytellers, theater people and members of the audience who love stories - evaluated how well each story was told, how well it was constructed, how well the story explored, connected and/or revealed some truth about the theme and, how well it honored the time limit. The 2 highest-scoring tellers and 1 audience choice were awarded prizes and an opportunity to perform and compete at the SEMIFINALS and the winners of the semifinals advance to the "BigMouthOff" at the end of the slam season (Sept - April).
