The monthly Moth StorySLAM at The Mothlight at Mr. Fred's is a huge hit! StorySLAMs are monthly competitions, where the stage is open to any and all with a story to tell on the evening's theme.

Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.

The next Moth StorySLAM happens Thursday, October 15 at The Mothlight at Mr. Fred's in West Asheville. Tickets go on sale Oct. 8 at 3 pm. The Moth StorySLAMs are monthly storytelling competitions where the stage is open to any and all with a story to tell on the evening's theme. This month's theme is 'Home'.

The Moth Radio Hour can be heard on WCQS, Sunday nights at 6, beginning October 4th. The Moth Radio Hour features the most beloved tales and the stories behind the stories from The Moth main stage and StorySLAM events. WCQS previously broadcast The Moth Radio Hour as a limited run series over the years, and is delighted to be able to add the program as a part of the weekly line up.

WCQS is thrilled to welcome The Moth to Asheville. 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.
