Have you ever lost something that mattered so much to you? How about someone? Did you find them later? Or maybe you're the one who has been lost. Cell phones, parents, your direction, faith in humankind - what have you lost? Tell us about it.

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. 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. Highest-scoring tellers are awarded prizes and an opportunity to perform at the "BigMouthOff" at the at the end of story slam season V in April.
