Orlando

Orlando Story Club is a quarterly storytelling series that features a different theme and partner charity each event.

Everyone is invited to throw their name in a hat for a chance to tell a story.

Ten participants are chosen from the hat. Stories must be no longer than 5 minutes in length, told without notes, and must connect with the theme.

The results can be unpredictable, sometimes outrageous, sometimes poignant, but always a lot of fun!

I started the club with my friend William Watson when I first moved back from Los Angeles to Orlando.  I was sharing my frustration that I was not able to convince The Moth that Orlando was a big enough city for storytelling.  William said – let’s start our own. 

Almost six years later it is still running strong and we’ve raised large amounts of money for some of the most amazing charities.  My good friends Danielle Ziss and Bobby Wesley now run it and if you are in O-Town you should not miss it.

You can explore the Orlando Story Club website and watch hundreds of stories on their Facebook page.
