The Moth GrandSLAM is a battle of wits and words - fierce, hilarious, heartbreaking and all points between. On this night winners of the past year's monthly StorySLAMs compete, using words as weapons, to determine The Moth's Asheville GrandSLAM Champion.
The Moth is dedicated to finding intriguing people to tell to inspired stories. Moth stories are true, as remembered by the storyteller and are always told live. The monthly StorySLAM in Asheville typically happens the 3rd Thursday of each month at [the aptly named] Mothlight in West Asheville. Learn more.
