Article of How to Not Judge

The Moth’s Story Slam or: How Not to Judge

By Queequeg

June 2nd, 2009 @ 9:35 AM Commentary, East Side, Events, West Side

800px-tragic_life_storiesOne of the worst things I did in college and post-college was go to poetry slams. They sound so great in theory, but the reality is, the ones I went to completely failed to build and strengthen community (which I thought they were supposed to actually do). Instead, these slams were self-affirming forums to bolster rather… Continue

Everyone showed up so I did the story while the votes were counted. I took your advice and changed it a lot. Thank you. I hope you made it home okay with the snow. Susan

Hi Andrea,

No, I'm not in Mass, I'm down south in SC Upstate! Southern Appalachia is where I was born and hail from. I don't speak the vernacular  now, but am quite familiar with it, especially from one side of the family. Am taking a class on Folk Tales, Music and Medicine  currently and came across  a link that was filled with great info and resources. I'll be hanging out there for awhile! So glad to know this is an available resource.

Thank you! Among other things I am hoping it will help me find an agent to book me at schools.

Yeah, the 12th sounds fun. JP is easier for me.

Thanks, but I'm out. That's not a drive I want to make from Watertown on a school night. Would love to do another closer event.

Hi Andrea. Regarding your suggestion to tell a story on the 13th in Quincy... where is it, and what's the theme? Still five minutes, right? As long as there's alcohol, I'm game.

Hey Andrea, I know this message is a bit late, but I was wondering If you have to be over 21 for tonight show? Hopefully you get this before tonight and also say you don't need to be 21! Crossing my fingers

Andrea, glad to be finally in. Thanks for following my problem up to the end! I actually wanted to throw my name in the hat for this Saturday's "Resolution" story slam at Doyle's. Is that a possibility?
