LEFTOVERS: Prepare a five-minute story of what remained. Feelings, dinners, or lingering guests; the time there was too much or not quite enough; or the moment you couldn’t quite end things clearly. Cold pizza for breakfast, the last appetizer on the plate, family heirlooms, seeds of resentment.
The Moth is true stories, told live and without notes. We celebrate the ability oftrue, personal storytelling to illuminate both the diversity and commonality ofhuman experience. Our work allows people all over the world and from all walks of life–astronauts, students, a dental hygienist, a hotdog eating champion, a mechanic, exonerated prisoners, veterans, Nobel laureates and everyone in between–to share their stories on stage in front of a live audience. Through live shows, storytelling workshops, a podcast, Peabody Award-winning Radio Hour, and New York TimesBest Selling books, The Moth brings the power of personal storytelling to millionsof people each year—creating community and building empathy around the world.
