Do you have a story inside of you that you want to share with the world? Have you ever seen or heard a story at the Moth, at RISK!, or on This American Life, and thought, “I could do that!”
Well, here is the workshop for you!
In this brisk four-week workshop, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about developing and performing your own personal story for the stage - culminating in actually performing your story at an invited class show!
And who are we, to be teaching you these fundamentals of writing and storytelling?

Very excited about this. We’ve told a lot of stories on stage, on RISK!, at The Moth, at our monthly show True Tales of Lust and Love, and on the This American Wife podcast, and now we’ve got a fun workshop to help you tell your own stories.
Because you have amazing stories. Am I right?
