Advanced Storytelling: A San Francisco Master Storytelling Class
You’ve gotten up at the Moth, but that GrandSlam title remains elusive. No Problem! Let comedic storyteller and Moth host Corey Rosen help you take your storytelling into overdrive. In this 5-week San Francisco master storytelling class, he covers topics like getting the raw emotion in your story, stage craft, finding the soul of your story, and deepening your stories. You will learn to adapt the same story to fit different Moth and storytelling show themes without being too on the nose. You’ll also learn to feed off the physical experience of being on stage as well as gain a better understanding of the audience/performer relationship. Corey will even show you how to use improv to change things up and adapt. By the end of the class, you’ll have completed two finished tales that you can strut your stuff with in front of throngs of adoring fans.

When Marilyn Friedman first arrived in LA in 2004, she tried in vain to find a great writing class. She searched high and low, from Silverlake to Simi Valley. She braved cramped surroundings, stinky salads, lackluster writing prompts, and heavily medicated instructors. However, she realized that instead of looking for local writing classes, why not create her own for people to join her in. That's when she found her passion for teaching and writing. Almost ten years, hundreds of classes and three locations later she has built a community of amazing, supportive, and talented writers.
