What is a Story Slam? A story slam is a contest of stories by known and undiscovered talent. 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. This year you be the judge , the audience will- 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 teller wins the coveted Osgood award and has their name engraved on the Osgood plaque forever.
