Story Slam @ Doyle's Jamaica Plain Saturday February 16 "BETRAYED"
Saturday, February 16, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM (EST)
What's a story slam?
Modeled after poetry slams, massmouth’s story slams invite storytellers—from experienced performers to first-timers—to share a real-life story in five minutes. Storytellers sign up and 10 are chosen at random to tell their story on the slam's theme. Volunteer judges award prizes based on a story’s narrative arc, presentation and connection to the theme. Judges select first and second place winners and the audience votes for a third. Winners are invited back for the semi-finals in March, where they vie for a spot in the finals.
Story Slam Finals (also known as the Big Mouth Off) will take place on April 17th,2013 at the Coolidge Corner Theater in Brookline! GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.
