massmouth Story Slams have exploded in popularity and our 2011-12 season took place in Somerville, Cambridge, Jamaica Plain, Quincy and as far away as Lowell and Worcester.  Many times people were turned away at the door because of overflow.  It's clear, we are here to stay and growing!

massmouth slams attracted seasoned professionals and fledgling storytellers alike sharing their experiences and revealing their insights on themes like: 

emergency***supernatural***stupid-cupid***resolution***wheels***obsession*** shell-shocked home***cupid***genesis***idols***gifts***pranked***college dayz 

At each slam contestants who are storytellers and lawyers, medical students, homeschooling moms, journalists, grad students, artists and professional storytellers shared real life stories and competed for a place in the semifinals. The winners of those contests will perform here as they compete for the grand prize- a week in a medieval Tuscan townhouse, yes that's Tuscany, Italy!


Tickets are $20 on line and $25 at the door. All proceeds benefit the StoriesLive® High School Scholarship Story Slam. Last year storytellers from massmouth,inc. taught 1,100 high school students to tell their personal stories and distributed over $5000 in prizes.


There are more prizes for the winners chosen by the distinguiished judges.  In addition there will be one Audience Choice winner voted in by the crowd at end of the evening, so you get to vote!


In between sets of judged stories, the audience can participate in a mini-slam of stories on the theme  - "wrong turn" at the final slam of the season.

Organizer

massmouth, inc.

massmouth works to renew the timeless art of storytelling in Massachusetts by engaging a new generation of tellers and listeners through education, live performance and social media.


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 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 (Sept - April).
