Dispatches from the Moth · Posted On: Dec 20, 2011

A Year of Exceptional Stories

by Joan D. Firestone, Executive Director

What a year! Standing-room only audiences at 25 Mainstage shows in 13 cities, an extraordinary 123 open-mic StorySLAMs with regular series now in seven cities, plus hundreds of teens and underserved adults benefitted from our MothSHOP Community Education Program. Winner of the prestigious Peabody Award for Excellence in Electronic Media, The Moth Radio Hour reaches audiences in the millions on 250 public radio stations, and our podcast was downloaded more than 14 million times.

The cost of crafting, presenting and sharing stories is a huge challenge for a not-for-profit organization where the box office covers only 27% of our expenses. As the year draws to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible donation today and join The Moth family. Become a Moth member, from just $125, and enjoy benefits including advance notice of shows, complimentary tickets to our members’ show and a Moth tote bag, and the knowledge that you are supporting a unique community-building art form.

Funny. Sad. True. We can’t do it without you! Help us to keep producing and sharing stories. You can donate or become a member online, by calling 212.507.9833 or by mailing a check, payable to “Storyville Center for the Spoken Word”.

Best wishes for a joyous holiday season and a safe, peaceful and productive New Year.
