Intro to Storytelling with Kurt Mullen – via ZOOM

September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This class is being offered via ZOOM

Whether we’re on a date, at a family dinner, on a sales call, or on stage, we are all telling stories, all the time. Why not be good at it? Learn to tell stories in ways that really connect. Learn to craft the kinds of powerful, funny, impactful stories like you hear on The Moth and other popular true-story podcasts.

Kurt Mullen is a storyteller, writer, and teacher. He has recently filmed a story for PBS’s Stories from the Stage. His long-form story “You Don’t Know Jack,” recorded live in Burlington, VT, can be heard on the RISK! True Stories podcast. He won the Audience Choice Award at a story slam at Club Passim in Cambridge, hosted by the MassMouth organization. And he won a Full Moon Story Slam at The Actors Studio of Newburyport. Kurt began his writing career as a beat reporter for a daily newspaper in Virginia. He worked on and contributed to Encarta Africana, an encyclopedia of the African diaspora, edited by Henry Louis Gates, Jr., at Harvard University, and then at Microsoft in Redmond, WA. He has written features and essays for Powder, Paddler, Canoe & Kayak, Berkshire, and many other magazines.

His fiction has been featured by the Liars’ League of NYC, and has appeared in Bull, Flash Fiction Magazine, and 101words.org. Kurt loves to teach, and previously taught Creative Nonfiction writing for the Newburyport Adult Education program.
