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

January 28, 2020: BEG BORROW STEAL

Prepare a five-minute story about need, desire, and greed. Extraordinary measures. Swindles, heists and deals with the devil. Robin Hood or hood-winked. Making “it” happen by any means necessary….

 

February 25, 2020: REVOLUTION

Prepare a five-minute story about rebellion. Renewal, upheaval, or ridding a system of evil. Whether macro or micro, tell us about a moment of complete transformation, progression, regression. A call to arms or a call to action, share a story of change and the power of resistance.

 

March 3, 2020: CHALLENGE

Prepare a five-minute story about a feat that tested your mettle, sanity or patience. Triumph or defeat. Inch-by-inch success or major overhaul. Defeating the cocky know-it-all or walking past the spider web without freaking out. Throwdowns, duels, unbearable ultimatums. Bring us your tales of defying the odds, confronting that fear, or with any luck, rising to the occasion.

 

Tuesday, April 14, 2020: EARTH

Prepare a five-minute story about EARTH. Communing with nature, digging up dirt, or saving our blue marble. Cooling or warming, believing or denying, uniter or great divider. Bring us stories of Mother Nature, Smokey the Bear and other salts of the earth.

Tuesday, May 19, 2020: DEDICATION

Prepare a five-minute story about devotion. Pledging your allegiance to a lover or a cause. Sticking to your guns. Following the plan. Nose to the grindstone. Eyes on the finish line. Wholly committed or fleeing the fervor of others.
