Spillit Slam: Around the Fringes w/Memphis Fringe Festival

  • McCoy Theater: Rhodes College 2000 North Parkway Memphis, TN, 38112 United States (map)

Spillit is happy to be a part of the Memphis Fringe Festival this year. Join your host Sean Mosley on the campus of Rhodes College for your chance to have your story heard. The theme for this event is Around the Fringes.

Yes, it's a competition but it's also an opportunity to share five minutes of YOU with a room full of kind folks who appreciate stories.

How it works:
If you want to tell your five minute story, you'll drop your name in the bucket. We'll draw up to ten names and each person has five minutes to tell their story. Three judges score the stories on a scale of 1-10 based on content and presentation. Content is a measure of the story itself. Does it have a plot with strong beginning, absorbing middle and it drives right through to the end? Does it relate to the theme of the slam? Presentation is a measure of how well the story is told. Does the storyteller bring the story to life and connect with the audience. Is the story 5 minutes or less?

No props or notes are allowed.

After basking in triumphant glory, the winner is invited to compete in the Story Grand Slam in November for the title of Grand Master Storyteller of Memphis.

$10 Admission, paid at the door. There will be a Cash Bar.
