Storytelling Workshop

Although this isn’t strictly an “improv” workshop, we scheduled it to coincide with the Big Pond Improv Festival to give improvisers the chance to try something new (and isn’t every improv scene just telling a story anyway)? Open to improvisers, standups, and “regular people” alike!

Moth StorySLAM winner Susanne Schmidt leads this hands-on workshop in crafting a compelling story from your personal experience.

Join in the fun!

About the Instructor

Susanne Schmidt, a native New Yorker, visited Vermont in 1985 with only a cat, a Karmann Ghia, and a guitar. Just over the border, the car broke down, the guitar was bartered to the tow truck man, and the cat ran away. Despite what others might have taken as ill omens, Susanne decided that Vermont was the perfect place to call home.

In addition to being a jazz drummer and a storyteller, Susanne is also a professor for Southern New Hampshire University's graduate program in Clinical Mental Health. She is the mother of two amazing sons who would prefer that she not talk about them on stage.

She is a standup comic, storyteller, Moth StorySLAM winner, host, and regional producer. Susanne is also the founder of "Say It Forward Productions", a storytelling performance collaborative that raises funds for non-profit organizations.
