Instructors: Mindy Nettifee & Katie Piatt. Master the art of live true personal storytelling, to get in on the fun on stage at The Moth, Back Fence PDX, or any of the storytelling shows in town. In this three week intro course, you will learn the basics of story construction using the five-part story arc, and how to use themes to choose your details and hone the right tone. You will also get the goods on how to deliver your best performance onstage. This class culminates in a live storytelling show, where you’ll tell your story before a live audience and have your story recorded as an audio file for you to keep.


Toastmasters and self-help have taken you as far as you can go. Your ability to manifest your dreams and realize your purpose; to be and express your best self; and to not sweat and panic and dread your life so much along the way - that's what's on the line. It's time to get real with real help, and we've got you. Brought to you by the producers of Back Fence PDX! Free Delivery offers expert personal coaching from coaches you will actually look forward to spending time with. We also work with businesses and organizations, and offer sought-after custom workshops; impossibly good event emceeing; and internal research and intervention services for departments and teams who are stuck for mysterious (and some obvious) reasons.

We know a lot of coaching and workshops are a big waste of time. We've been there, and it doesn't have to be that way. Let us put our years of experience to work for you - we have expertise in personal and group psychology, creative writing and expressive arts, scripted and improvisational performance, and straight up comedy and good-times-production.
