Story Request Changes

by The Moth

Dear Moth Storytellers,

We’re making some changes that will allow us to fill your story requests quicker and to better serve more of The Moth storytelling community.

Every Moth show in every city is professionally recorded both in audio and video. For several years now we’ve made it possible for storytellers to order a video of their Moth stories. Since 2013, the amount of requests we’ve received has tripled, and we continue to see the number of requests grow.

The Moth storytelling community now includes storytellers in 24 cities on three different continents who tell stories at over 500 shows per year! This growth is exciting, but it does present challenges. As more and more video requests come into our New York City office from more and more cities, processing and delivery has not been able to keep pace with the number of requests we receive. In order to better fill those requests and serve as many in The Moth community as possible, today we are announcing changes to The Moth story request program.

Starting on August 6th an mp3 audio file of your story will be available through our story request form for $15 per story. A digital video copy of your story will now be offered as a premium service and will be available for $50 per story. DVDs will no longer be available.

You can request your Moth story here:

If you have any questions, please contact us at

Thank you,

The Moth
