Trident "Animal Nature Slam"

  • Trident Booksellers 338 Newbury Street Boston, MA, 02115 United States (map)

Come on down to Trident Booksellers on Newbury Street for our monthly 'slam." This month's theme is "animal nature."

Tickets are $10 online or at the door. Doors open at 6pm. Show is at 7pm.

 

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 (see full season listing below). 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 2 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 May.
