Word of Mouth Storytelling Slam: “Weather”
Friday, March 6 • 7PM ($5–Cash only at the door)

Prepare a five minutes story, based on the theme “Weather,” put your name
in a hat and you could be one of ten people selected to tell your story on stage!

How to prepare/participate . . .

  • Let neither sleet, nor snow, nor cold, or gloom of night stay these raconteurs from
    preparing a five-minute story about everyone’s favorite small-talk: the weather.
    Did it rain on your parade? Melt the soles of your shoes? Or yield an unexpected rainbow?
    Tell us how Mother Nature made your day a heaven or a hell.
  • Stories must be told not read-that’s right, no notes, no writing on your palm, no cue cards.
  • Arrive at the slam 30 minutes before the start time to put your name in the hat.
  • Once the slam starts, the host picks a name and the first storyteller tells a story.
  • After each story, judges give scores based on these questions:
    • Is the story on theme?
    • Was it five minutes or under?
    • Was there a meaningful conflict and resolution?
  • At the end of slam, the storyteller with the highest score wins!
