The Moth StorySLAMs are steadily spreading all over the map, gathering people and stories from all over the country. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Boston have multiple shows each month. The Moth is open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s posted theme. The brave of heart, or those with stories they’re aching to tell, prepare personal, true tales. 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. Each person has just five minutes! 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 our GrandSLAM Championships. Come sign up to tell a story, or just enjoy the show!

Upcoming Dates

June 18, 2019: FOOD

Prepare a five-minute story about GOOD FOOD. Vittles, grub, cuisine, groceries, homemade or take out. From frozen dinners to nuts and berries, bring us stories of nourishment. From gluttony to gluten intolerance, tales of your daily bread.

July 16, 2019: BAGGAGE

Prepare a five-minute story about the things we carry. Personal belongings, long-held ideas, that ex who lingers years later. Suitcases, trunks, purses and pocketbooks. Whether in your hand or forever on your mind, traveling light or weighted down. Check it at the door or carry it on, whatever the case, we all have it.

 

August 13, 2019: CAMP

Prepare a five-minute story about camp; the summer destination where you found friends, first loves, and maybe a bees nest or two. Roughing it out in the woods or pitching tents in your backyard. Whether it’s the territory or community, you’ll defend to the death, or the unbridled joy of kitsch and pomp, we want to hear what camp, or your camp, means to you.

 

August 27, 2019: PAPER

Prepare a five-minute story about paper. Newsprint, to do lists, photo albums, pink slips. The concert tickets you spent your last dime on or the lease for your dream apartment. Bounced checks, love letters, divorce documents. Getting it in writing or signing your life away. The pen may be mightier than the sword…but not without something to write on.

 

October 22, 2019: INK

Prepare a five-minute story involving things written or drawn in ink. Manifestos, diaries, contracts…dotted lines. Commitments! Tattoos you relish or regret. Documents that finally solve the mystery. Notes and letters you wish you take back. The pen is mightier than the sword? Ok, no pencils allowed.

 

November 26, 2019: LANDMARKS

Prepare a five-minute story about the places and points that plot our course. Meeting at the top of the Empire State Building, seeing the world’s largest ball of yarn, or returning to your ancestral home. Making decisions big or small, from the Supreme Court to your Magic 8-ball. If you’ve reached the Y-shaped tree, you’ve gone too far.

 

December 17, 2019: NAMES

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names? Prepare a five-minute story involving a name. Name dropping, name calling and making a name for yourself. Pet names for your lover or nicknames earned by reputation. Fluffy, Hot Lips, Barky, Claude, Spot, Mr. Punctual. Think labels and titles. Designer jeans, sneakers, neighborhoods. “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”
