The Moth – StorySLAM
The Moth StorySLAM is an open-mic storytelling competition. Open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s theme. Come tell a story, or just enjoy the show!
When the doors open, storyteller hopefuls put their names in The Moth “hat.” A half-hour later, names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage. The ten featured stories are scored by teams of judges selected from the audience. Each StorySLAM generates a StorySLAM winner. After ten SLAMs, the winners face off in a GrandSLAM Championship.
Prepare a five-minute story about your maiden voyage into uncharted territory. Wax on about your first: standing ovation, miserable failure, kiss, child, the crisis of conscience, job, pet, toupee, trip overseas, exorcism, internet date, grandchild or fistfight. Grand openings, birth order, wild initiations, or milestones reached.

“The Moth reminds me how fascinating, brave, complex, and fragile we are. We have so much in common, yet every StorySLAM is unique.”
