When the doors open, storyteller hopefuls put their names in The Moth “hat.” A half hour later, names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage. The ten featured stories are scored by teams of judges selected from the audience. Each StorySLAM generates a StorySLAM winner. After ten SLAMs, the winners face off in a GrandSLAM Championship.
How to tell your story at a StorySLAM:
How Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 6 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the wheel to decide the prompt for their story. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part…each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.
