Are you ready to meet your audience?

Telling your story is the first step. Good storytelling is the secret to connecting with your audience, whether you’re chronicling your dating adventures, performing on stage at The Moth, giving a TED talk, or preparing a bio for your blog.

We’ll teach you:

  • how to build a plot using the principles of story structure
  • how to create drama, tension, and conflict
  • how to use suspense, surprise, and humor to hook your readers
  • how to express yourself and your personality in an honest, authentic way that will connect with your audience

This class is fun and interactive, balancing classroom instruction with creativity exercises to help you get inspired and start writing. The principles of storytelling are universal, and this class draws on examples not only from the great writers, but also from filmmakers like Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock, memoirists like David Sedaris and Sloane Crosley, and stories from The Moth and This American Life.

This class is taught by Jay Dixit.
