massmouth's first JP story slam took place at Bella Luna on Sunday, October 17th, 2010 to a packed room. What is a story slam? Based on a poetry slam format and similar to American Idol, a story slam is a contest of words by known and undiscovered talent. massmouth posts a theme on it's website and story slammers will sign up on the night to tell a 5-minute short story on the evening's theme and a lucky ten names will be drawn at random from a bag. There will be a team of 5 judges - interested amatuers, who love stories. We give preference to new tellers.
