Event Details

Do you have a story to tell?

Once again, Trident Booksellers is partnering with Massmouth to bring you some of the best emerging and featured storytellers in Greater Boston. Join us in Trident's cafe for an evening of engaging entertainment, and dinner and drinks if you choose. 

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 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 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.
