Intro to Storytelling with Kurt Mullen – via ZOOM

April 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

This class is being offered via ZOOM

With Kurt you can learn to craft and tell the powerful, funny, and impactful tales you hear on The Moth and other popular true-story podcasts. Kurt loves storytelling, lives to share his enthusiasm for it, and knows that anyone can learn these skills.

Kurt Mullen is a storyteller, writer, and teacher. Two of his stories have been featured on 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 popular RISK! True Stories podcast. He is co-founder and co-host of GRIT: True Stories that Matter, a weekly podcast that features the best storytellers alive today.

As a writer, Kurt started 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.

Listen to Kurt tell you how he started telling stories (5 min 30 sec).
