Tales from the Road: Travel Stories from PC Service

  • 14 Jun 2020
  • 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
  • Virtual via Zoom


Registration is closed
Everyone loves a good story. And RPCVs have some good ones, some crazy ones, and some hilarious ones. This event is a Moth-inspired storytelling open mic. Our theme is "tales from the road", so think back on all those crazy travel stories you've got stored up and choose one to share.

Time slots are 5 minutes each and space is limited. When you RSVP, please state whether you have a story to share or if you'd like to be an audience member. After your register, you'll receive a confirmation email with the Zoom call details.

Some storytelling tips:

  • Allow yourself to be vulnerable – Be humble, personable, and intimate.
  • Use dialogue – it helps develop characters and makes it more fun!
  • Find a way to frame your story – WHY are you telling the story. Find a hook to open and a satisfying closing line.
  • Use the rule of threes – Things that come in threes are inherently funnier and more satisfying
  • Get the audience on your side – If they like you, they will be more attentive. Feel free to throw in some translated local language!
  • Practice with a friend!
Hope to hear your travel story! See you on Zoom!
