the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts

Hey, all!


I just posted my listing for SMUT SLAM ("where storytelling and erotica collide") and wanted to follow up with a special request for judges and participants for this (not-long-to-be-)virgin voyage. I'm hosting, so I can't be either a judge or participant, although I will be the house rep for the IRON SMUT lightning round after intermission.


Please check out the event listing for details about how to participate (mostly same standard rules as at all the massmouth slams), and if you're interested in being a judge, please drop me a line and tell me why you think you'd be good at judging smut.

Camryn, I'd love to judge, I oughta be pretty well qualified, I published and edited a smut magazine for five years (Paramour, no longer in evidence but Susie Bright was a fan, got many stories in Best American Erotica).  I could help you find others, like my friend Susanne Boitano who writes about kink for the Phoenix, and/or others who used to write for me.  Cecilia Tan? (Tho' maybe too busy... I would love to judge with Susanne & Cecilia tho'! :-)


Can you write to me off list at  I can give you email addresses for others if you like.


Oh I met you at Bella Luna the other night, I told the Passover story; I am a terrible performer but a good editor (that will have been my first and last storytelling foray ;-)
