Kansas City StorySlam is a MOTH-style event where anyone is welcome to tell a short personal story to a group of friendly listeners.

Modeled after the Free State Story Slam in Lawrence, here are some of their rules and suggestions for feature stories which should be:
-True
-Engaging
-Prepared in advance and told without notes (notes are OK with me though if it helps, just don't read the whole thing if you can)
-Narrative (not a rant, a stand-up comedy routine, an essay or a poem)
-On time, 5-8 minutes, 7 minutes is a great length.

If you don't have a feature story, we will solicit short stories from the audience in between.

For the first time we will have no theme, since I can't come up with anything broad enough to make it interesting. At the end we may vote for the favorite story. Lawrence group invites the winners to their season finale. Hopefully this is not our season finale 🙂

There will be no cover charge of course, but it's a bar, so make it worth their while, even if you are only drinking Coke. They also asked me to remind you that it's 21+.

Please share this, I want to see this event take off. All suggestions are welcome and I will answer any questions.
