Slams

Come join one of our popular story slams at Trident Booksellers or Club Passim. 

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 true five-minute story on the evening's theme (see full season listing below). 10 names are drawn at random from a box. A team of five volunteer judges evaluates 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 Big Mouth Off at the end of the slam season in May.
