Writing & Storytelling: Find Your Voice, Captivate Your Audience

By ·The New York Writers' Intensive

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:

"The intensive workshop was full of passion for storytelling, with a friendly homely atmosphere. Jay shared with all of us some thoughtful insights. I enjoyed it very much." —Gideon Amichay

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, Quentin Tarantino, and Alfred Hitchcock, writers like David Mamet, Kurt Vonnegut, and David Sedaris, and stories from The Moth and This American Life.
