Sage Tyrtle Won Atlanta Moth StorySLAM

One of the REALLY exciting aspects of the lockdown is that the Moth StorySLAMS are currently all online. Which means that instead of flying on an airplane to an American city, buying a ticket, and hoping like crazy my name will be randomly picked (which I’ve done twice) I can attend any StorySLAM I want! (At $16.33 a ticket, it’s a savings of about $873. I wish I were kidding.)

ANYWAY, I was picked to tell a story last night at the Atlanta Moth StorySLAM and I am so excited to report that I won, which is my second Moth StorySLAM win. I am doing SO much happy dancing.

Stories From The Stage Featuring Storyteller Sage Tyrtle

WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE CALL MY 5 YEAR OLD SELF AND TELL HER THAT I WAS ON PBS? EEEEEEEEEEE!

I am crazy happy to tell you that on June 22 I was part of World Vision’s Stories From The Stage, which was filmed in Boston.

Sometimes our first impressions are dead on. But snap judgments aren’t always the best ones. As a teen, Sage Tyrtle stumbles on a boy in a virtual chat room and decides to travel to the other side of the country to meet him; Dallas Ducar, a psychiatric nurse, must face her fear during a life-saving encounter with a neo-Nazi patient; and unlucky in love, Kevin Allison finds love by coincidence and a twist of fate. Three storytellers, three interpretations of FIRST IMPRESSIONS, hosted by Theresa Okokon. You can watch the episode below.
