The Universal in the Particular: Crafting Personal Narratives to Create Emotional Catharsis in the Audience

Telling deeply personal and honest stories can be therapeutic and cathartic for the storyteller; however, creating emotional experiences for audiences to connect is a whole other art form. Join New York Times memoirist, four-time Moth StorySlam champion, and National Storytelling Network Grand Slam Champion Jamie Brickhouse as he reveals the craft of unlocking and performing moving stories with messages of universal healing and transformation.

Georgia Tech's Transformative Narratives initiative is designed to enhance self-awareness, increase cultural competence, and connect us through the sharing of diverse identities, experiences, and perspectives. Events are free and open to faculty, staff, students, and invited guests from the greater Atlanta community.
