How can the worst thing that ever happened to you become one of the best things that ever happened to you? Ask Alyssa Pinsker, widely published writer and participant in such world-renowned performance events as the Moth storytelling hour; she’ll attest that turning embarrassment into a story can not only be great therapy, it can also be great entertainment. In Pinsker’s six-week workshop, you can learn to create a compelling narrative arc, connect with an audience and find some closure: It’s the art of completely vulnerable storytelling.”
How can you turn the worst thing that ever happened to you into the best thing that ever happened to you? Turn it into a story to be told on stage. Storytellers transform their most mortifying experiences into healing moments through a trifecta of skills: creating a compelling narrative arc, finding closure, and connecting with the audience through sheer vulnerability.
