Fascinating authors. Insightful entrepreneurs. Inspiring artists, musicians, and performers. And everyday Americans.
All these people are talking about the moments that changed their lives forever. They have stories that sound too funny, too wild, too surprising to be true.
And you’re invited to watch below as the Storytellers Project brings America more than 43 virtual shows of true, first-person stories on themes including growing up, outdoor adventures, and race and identity.
The Storytellers Project serves as a way for USA TODAY Network newsrooms to connect with their communities through their journalism, as reporters and editors coach people in bringing their truths to virtual audiences.
The nights blend the authenticity of storytelling as an art form with the truthfulness, community-building, and empowerment that great journalism is grounded in.
Anyone interested in telling a story should fill out an application and story pitch form.
