Master the art of live storytelling! Learn how to craft stories using the five-part story arc, delivering your best performance onstage, and pitching to live show and radio producers. This class culminates in a live storytelling show, where you’ll tell your story before a live audience and have your story recorded as an audio file for you to keep.
Mindy Nettifee is one of the producers of Back Fence PDX and host for the Moth. She is an award-winning writer, performance poet, and storyteller. In addition to her many years teaching the craft of live storytelling, she has taught creative writing and performance workshops at several institutions, including New York University and Lewis & Clark College.
