A live storytelling competition in the vein of The Moth, a non-profit literary society from New York City. Storytellers (slammers) have 5 minutes each to tell a true story. Unlike The Moth, notes are allowed.

When the doors open, storyteller hopefuls put their names in the “hat.” At show time, names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage. The eight to ten featured stories are scored by the audience. Each Story Slam generates a Story Slam winner who receives $100. The first and second place finishers are advanced to the Grand Slam, held in the fall on the stage at Highlands Lakeside Theatre.

The first act will be a voluntary ice breaker game. The stories will be presented in the second act.  Visit https://docs.google.com/document/d/1C_e_acjpkp8DO959rUKB9kM03woayuZEwRBOpb4Kp4Y/edit?usp=drive_link  for the rules.

Sign up for a chance to tell a story or sit back and enjoy the show! All attendees, whether competing or not, must have a ticket.

Cautions: May not be suitable for children under 13 years old.
