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 are drawn at random from a box. 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. The two highest-scoring tellers and a third selected by the audience are awarded prizes and an opportunity to perform at the “BigMouthOff” at the end of the slam season in the spring.
