Got the travel bug? Train, plane, bike, boat or bus? Have you backpacked across the globe? Walked cross-country? Shuffled to the fridge to get a sandwich or gone camping in your backyard? We’re not picky about how or where – if you’ve got a good travel story, we want to hear it!
Note: Prior to the slam there will be a half-hour workshop if you’re new and/or looking for a few good storytelling tips!
Venue: we are happy to be collaborating 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
