The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling, and a recipient of a 2012 John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation MacArthur Award for Creative & Effective Institutions (MACEI). Through its ongoing programs—The Moth Mainstage, The Moth StorySLAMs, The Moth Community & Education Programs, and Moth Corporate Programs—The Moth has presented more than ten thousand stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. The Moth podcast is downloaded over 27 million times a year, and the Peabody Award-winning The Moth Radio Hour, produced by Jay Allison and presented by PRX, The Public Radio Exchange, airs weekly on over 400 radio stations nationwide. The new Moth Mobile App for iOS and Android, and the international bestseller, The Moth: 50 True Stories (Hyperion), are available now. themoth.org.

The Moth Mainstage is our flagship program. It features true, personal stories by luminaries in the arts and sciences, as well as an astronaut, an undertaker, a voodoo priestess and a retired NYPD detective, among many others. Each show features five carefully selected storytellers who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors. The Moth Mainstage is a staple of the literary and art scenes in New York City, Los Angeles, and Boston, and a continuing presence across the U.S. and beyond. Partners have included public radio stations, non-profit organizations and international arts festivals. We’ve even joined forces with the U.S. State Department to produce Mainstage shows in Dushanbe, Tajikistan and Podgorica, Montenegro.
