Word of Mouth Storytelling Slam: “Work”
Friday, February 1 • 7PM ($5–Cash only at the door)

Prepare a five minutes story, based on the theme “Work,” 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 . . .

  • Prepare a five minute story about what occupies your day, pays the bills and keeps you off the streets.
    Be it a drudgery, a calling, a dream-job, a place to clock-in 40 hours a week, or a task that turned out
    to be much more than you bargained for, we want to hear all about how you are making it work.
  • 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!
