"The ultimate storytelling competition, The Moth GrandSLAM invites winners from our open-mic StorySLAMs back to the stage for the New York City storytelling championship. The theme for the night is...A POINT OF BEAUTY.
“When the noise and ugliness got so loud, I focused in on a point of beauty.” --Maniza Naqvi, Dancing in the Bazaar - A Point of Beauty. Prepare a five-minute story about the gobsmackingly gorgeous nestled in the mess, the astonishingly attractive, the sensationally stunning. Witnessing an awe-inspiring work of art, or admiring the humble daisy growing through the crack in the sidewalk. Seeing past the sound and the fury to find something unexpectedly exquisite."
