What is a Story Slam?
A story slam is a contest of stories by known and undiscovered talent. Story slammers sign up on that night to tell a 5-minute true story on the evening's theme. Ten 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 top-scorer is awarded a prize and this winner, the runner-up and the audience-selected favorite earn an opportunity to compete to perform at the "Big Mouth Off" at the end of the slam season in the spring!
