Performance essays are all the rage. In this five-week Los Angeles storytelling class, solo performer, Moth Host and master storyteller Lauren Weedman will teach you how to be a storytelling pro. You’ll do fun, improvised storytelling drills, learn about the structure of performance essays, and explore ways to use your stories to boost your writing career. Lauren will show you how to transform relationships gone bad, family feuds, adventures, and life’s minutia into two riveting five-minute pieces that are the perfect mix of vulnerability and comedic vavoom. She’ll even teach you how to expose your narrator’s flaws while also persuading the audience to root for you.
By the end of the class, you’ll have crafted two polished stories based on upcoming Moth themes and be ready to blow the competition away at the Moth. You’ll get targeted feedback on your tales to help you polish up your diddies and you’ll perform one of them at a show at a professional theater! Before you know it, you’ll join the ranks of the 17 students who won StorySLAMs and 3 who won GrandSLAMs from taking this class.
