Are there storytelling/live reading shows in Adelaide or Melbourne, similar to The Moth in NYC/LA?
I write and tell short stories in NYC, mostly through The Moth,
though I've gotten stuff onto This American Life and done a number of smaller shows here like The Liar Show
, and Seth Lind's Told
Are there any opportunities to do something similar in Australia, by any chance? There's a growing storytelling scene here in New York, sort of like standup mixed with essay-writing ... wondering if there might be something similar Down Under.
A few of my stories deal directly with aspects of Aussie culture, too, as I lived there for about a year. Here's a few samples:
Now or Never
I'm leaving for Australia tomorrow morning for a 2-week holiday, spending one week in Adelaide and another in Melbourne. And if possible, I'd love to try some of these out down there. Is there any chance for something like that to happen? If so, would you mind putting me in touch with the right folks?
Thanks so much ...
