Author/Poet/Spoken Word/Midwest Native/Trans Activist
Hope your November is going well! I am enjoying my last few days of being 24 by prepping for my first ever Storytelling show! I recently took a storytelling class through The Story Studio (If you're in LA, Minneapolis, or NYC I highly recommend them!) and learned a lot about what makes a great story and how to best tell them. I'm really excited about our class show, which is coming up next week! (Details below)
I'm also working on pitching stories to a handful of podcasts (Risk! and The Moth) and prepping to compete in some of The Moth's weekly Story Slams. I'm still working on some poetry projects, but have been focusing most of my energies on storytelling lately.
Thanks again to all my subscribers! You all helped make this storytelling class possible for me, and have allowed me to expand my creative craft! I appreciate you all.
If you're in Manhattan on Thursday November 19th, come check out the show at Three of Cups (83 1st Ave, NYC) at 7pm! I'll be telling a story about meeting my girlfriend's mother for the first time! Testosterone and circumcision protests and supermoon eclipse, oh my!
Welcome! I'm Miles Walser, and I'm so glad you've stumbled on my Scratchbang page!
