Event Description

Theme: Lost in Translation

Have you ever been lost in translation? Said something one way, only to be understood in a completely different, incomprehensible way? or have you been on the receiving end of things? We would like to hear your story! Bring it!

Venue: we are happy to be collaborating once again with Hostelling International Boston for this slam. HI-Boston has revolutionized the world of hostels. It is a state-of-the-art, green building, designed with hostellers in mind. It is located in the center of Boston, on the border of the Theater District and Chinatown. 

What's a story slam?

Modeled after poetry slams, massmouth’s story slams invite storytellers—from experienced performers to first-timers—to share a real-life story in five minutes.  Storytellers sign up and 10 are chosen at random to tell their story on the slam's theme. Volunteer judges award prizes based on a story’s narrative arc, presentation and connection to the theme. Judges select first and second place winners and the audience votes for a third.* Winners are awarded prizes provided by massmouth and the venue.

* This slam is not included in massmouth's regular season.  Winners will not progress to the semi-finals or Big Mouth Off
