WHAT IS A STORYSLAM?

Structure

  • 5 story tellers

  • All interested in potentially telling a story will enter their name in a jar, 5 are chosen at random

  • Each story teller will get 5 minutes, plus a one minute grace period

Judging

  • Stories will be rated by judges randomly selected from the audience

  • Scores are on a scale of 1-10

  • Highest scoring story teller wins the prize basket

General Rules

  • True stories only - you must be the protagonist or one of the main characters in the story. No journalism

  • No notes or props allowed. The story telling experience is what the audience is coming for, and a sheet of paper gets in the way of that

  • Plan your story according to the theme of the night: Missed Connections

  • Finally, have fun!
