If you’ve ever listened to The Moth Radio Hour or The Moth Podcast, you already know the power and fun of personal storytelling. The stories we tell at The Time Of My Life aren’t traditional tales, folktales, or stand-up comedy. They are part of our shared human existence. Sometimes dramatic, sometimes hilarious, sometimes ordinary and seemingly insignificant but always honest, authentic, and real. In workshop sessions, we will learn to find the experience we need to tell, develop it into a story structure, and learn how to present it orally to an audience in a supportive and fun atmosphere. We will celebrate with an event where we tell our stories to an audience in the first person, on stage, and without notes.
Jonathan Scott has taught workshops and presented both live and online personal storytelling events in North Carolina since 2018. He is also the author of four novels and a short story collection.
This class will culminate in a public reading event on October 26, 5:30–7PM.
