About The Moth Pop Up Porch

Inspired by The Moth's origin—stories shared on warm nights as moths flocked towards the porch light and the stories—The Pop Up Porch is a tiny custom-built home fitted with a tiny porch designed for sharing and listening to stories. During the inaugural Pop Up Porch Tour in 2022, over 5,000 people gathered to learn about The Moth, listen to stories from our archive, and participate in free 1-on-1 story coaching sessions. In these sessions, members of The Moth's staff, including directors, producers, and instructors, used Moth-style storytelling techniques to help each person expand their experiences into stories.
