Writing & Storytelling: Find Your Voice, Captivate Your Audience

I'm happy to announce our upcoming class: Writing and Storytelling: How to Supercharge Your Creativity, Find Your Voice, and Captivate Your Audience.

The class will take place on Monday July 9 at 7pm at Skillshare HQ at 407 Broome Street #5A (between Lafayette and Centre). Buy your ticket here!

Here's what one student has to say about our most recent class:

"This class was a revelation. Jay led us through the intricacies and nuances of good storytelling. He dissected what makes for riveting stories and gave us concrete, actionable ways to work on our own writing. There was healthy discussion among our class of about ten people which, thanks to a well-structured curriculum and excellent leadership, never veered too far off-track even when the subject matter was fun and engaging. I'd be very interested to take more writing development courses from Jay." —Eric Pan

This class is being offered in partnership with Skillshare. Buy your ticket on Skillshare's web site here: http://skl.sh/Ka62pB

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 MametKurt Vonnegut, and David Sedaris, and stories from The Moth and This American Life.

    This was my first skillshare. I was excited to gain secrets from knowledgeable people in a DIY/community format. I will use what I learned from Jay for years to come.

    Hi Jay,
    I've paid for the class, but find that ity will be difficult for me to attend this evening. Is there any chance I could come to the August 6 session instead?

    Jay, I didn't pay for the class in time. Do you still have a seat for me?
