Storytelling is as old as time. It's how we share experiences, knowledge and memories. At its crux though, storytelling celebrates the diversity and universality of our experiences.

Keeping the flame alive, non-profit organisation The Moth is dedicated to sharing personal stories and celebrating the art of telling them. The New York-based initiative hosts over 500 live open-mic events across the globe each year, with notable literary and cultural personalities getting up on stage to tell their stories.

On Monday, June 17, Melbourne will be hearing some of the best stories of the city — from the most gripping to the ridiculous and the side-splitting — at The Moth GrandSLAM Championship. Ten champions, who have taken home the prize at open-mic storytelling competitions (StorySLAMS) around Melbourne, will tell tales of the point of no return.

Brandishing their weapons of word and wit at community-focused StorySLAMs, the champs will compete for the top gong and share brand new stories at the National Theatre in St Kilda. You'll hear ten five-minute stories that are both tightly crafted and masterfully told. Come hear stories that inspire, provoke, sadden and enlighten, told by some of Melbourne's best.

The Moth GrandSLAM Championship will take place at The National Theatre. Doors open at 7pm, with stories beginning at 8pm. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here
