When: 07/06/2015

Chicago Slam Works
A whole new kind of slam where Chicago's literary elite battle for ultimate bragging rights!

Monday, July 6
Doors at 7:30, Show at 8
$8 cover

The Rules:

1. Genre is entirely open to interpretation and largely irrelevant. As long as what is performed was at some point written down, it counts. This includes poetry, comedy, essay, music, etc.
2. The order in which competitors perform will be decided by random draw.
3. Performers will be given 6 minutes (and a 20 second grace period) to wow the audience and the judges. Cues will be given to the performers to indicate time. At the 6:30 mark, the performer will be forced to leave the stage. No time penalties, just pack it up and walk.
4. The performances will be judged by 5 members of the audience on a scale of 1 – 10 on qualities such as performance, content, originality, and the “wow” factor. Judges are generally chosen at random and will be interspersed throughout the crowd.

The Details:
Building on the success of the perhaps the largest literary movement of the last century, the Slam, Chicago Slam Works presents a brand new type of show using the slam format. (Chicago Slam Works, by the way, was founded by Marc Kelly Smith, the same guy who founded the poetry slam some 28 years ago. We know a thing or two about slam.) Poetry slam has grown from a raucous bar show in Chicago to a sweeping and hugely popular format in dozens of countries throughout the world. In the last number of years, story slams and comedy slams have been popping up all over the country, led by organizations such as The Moth. There is perhaps no city in America that has a more vibrant literature and performance (”live lit”) scene than Chicago, bolstering an impressive stable of internationally recognized writers in the fields of poetry, music, creative non-fiction, and comedy. The LitMash looks to bridge the omnipresent gaps between these scenes and create the one show where the city's finest creators can square off in a highly entertaining curated slam unlike any other show out there.

The Moth - StorySLAM! Monday, July 13

When: 07/13/2015
Where: Drinking & Writing Theater

The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story - and The Moth's directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.
Doors open at 5:00pm, Stories start at 8:00pm $8 cover.  Seating fills up quickly, so plan to be early!  The theme for July is Balance.

About the Outing:

We'll be playing the beautiful White Pines Golf Course in Bensenville, IL (just south of O'Hare Aiport). Free transportation will be available, once again, courtesy of Chicago Brew Bus picking up & dropping off golfers at Haymarket Pub & Brewery. The tournament will be a shot gun start and 4-man scramble format. We'll have a gift bag for each of the golfers and of course there will be contests along the way (closest to pin, longest drive, longest putt, etc.). A silent auction, awards ceremony and dinner buffet will follow the golf tournament in the White Pines club house. All money raised will go to benefit The Brain Research Foundation.

Almost forgot! There will also be delicious Craft Beer provided by Haymarket Pub & Brewery on 7 holes while you golf! Don't worry, we'll have a mulligan cart out there, too.
