“One of these things is not like the other, one of these things doesn’t belong…” Remember that song from Sesame Street? This theme isn’t just about being from outside a country but also the unfamiliar, the strange being in an abnormal place or position…not belonging. If story slams are foreign to you NOW is the time, this is the next to the last JP slam before the Semi Finals. Don’t be a stranger!

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 from a box. 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 perform at the "BigMouthOff" at the at the end of the slam season (Sept - April).
