Theme: Missed Connections
I am guessing we are all familiar with the "missed connections" section of craigslist. Have you ever met someone who inspired you to make your own post? Or maybe you found a post that could be talking about you! Come share!!
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.
