Massmouth Story Slam at Passim
This month's theme: PERFECT STORM.
What is a Story Slam? A story slam is a contest of stories on a set theme by known and undiscovered talent. Themes are posted on our events pages (www.massmouth.org) and story slammers sign up on the night to tell a 5-minute short story on the evening's theme. Ten names are drawn at random. A team of 5 volunteer judges - interested amateurs, storytellers, and members of the audience who love stories who 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 much story is created within the time limit. Highest-scoring tellers are awarded prizes and an opportunity to move up in competition and perhaps perform at the "BigMouthOff" at the at the end of story slam season VI in April, 2015.
Tickets in advance are recommended. Judges and volunteers get in for free.
