Author and poet George Dawes Green started the Moth, a non-profit organisation dedicated to storytelling, when he decided he wanted to recreate in New York the summer evening he’d spent in Georgia, sitting on a porch, sharing stories with friends.
Today the Moth holds a bunch of different events across the US, including Moth Mainstage, which brings together a group of master storytellers to tell personal tales on a particular topic. The Melbourne event, which is exclusive to the MWF, includes our very own Magda Szubanski and Moth host Ophira Eisenberg (pictured), and it’s all about ‘courage’.
