Event Description

Story Slam, Season V in Fall 2013!


Theme: risk

Have you ever been in a situation that exposed you to danger? Maybe you almost got hit by a car on your way to work, or burned your mouth on the first sip of coffee--because yes, you did know it was too hot, but decided to risk it anyway. It’s taking a little risk or a big one makes life interesting. Tell us about it!


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 at random. 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. Highest-scoring tellers are awarded prizes and an opportunity to perform at the "BigMouthOff" at the at the end of story slam season  V in April.
