Jealousy is one of the darkest human emotions, encompassing feelings that range from fear of abandonment to rage to humiliation. It strikes everyone and is different than envy, which involves a desire for something someone else has.

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).
