What is a Story Slam?  A story slam is a contest of stories by known and undiscovered talent. Themes are posted on our events pages (www.massmouth.com) and story slammers sign up on the night to tell a 5-minute short story on the evening's theme. Ten names will be drawn from a hat. A team of 5 volunteer judges - interested amateurs, storytellers, theater people and members of the audience who love stories - evaluate how well each story is told, how well it is constructed, how well the story explores, connects and/or reveals some truth about the theme and, how well it honors the time limit. The 2 highest-scoring tellers are awarded prizes and an opportunity to progress to the "BigMouthOff" at the at the end of the slam season.


"Located behind the historic Rosebud Diner, The Rosebud Bar and Grill is Davis Square's hidden jewel.  This beautiful music club offers a full-service bar and extensive bar menu."
