The Moth StorySLAMs

                                       Sarah Jones, telling a story live at The Moth.

Last night, I went to my first Moth StorySLAM. It was interesting, funny, engaging and as an avid reader/writer, it was a cool yet raw approach to storytelling. Basically, there is a theme – for example, last night’s was ‘burned’. 10 people are selected to tell their story in 5 minute intervals on how they were ‘burned’. There are 3 teams of judges from the audience and the rest of us are live support. In between, the very entertaining host reads the theme inspired submissions from their facebook audience. Ok, I already explained too much. Just go check one out. They currently hold slams in NY, Los Angeles, Chicago and Detroit. If you can’t make it there, check out the podcasts here.
