61 Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON M6J 2Y7, Canada (Map & Directions)
C'mon down to The Ossington and join me and custard heart for our 7th MothUP Toronto Storytelling night! This month's theme is "CLOSE ENCOUNTERS". Listen to (or tell) stories of chance meetings, surprising sightings, narrow misses, and things getting a little too close for comfort. (Note: This is the last MothUP of 2010, we're takin' December off.)
We love listeners, but we really love tellers.


...Potential storytellers should submit their name, title of story, and a brief piece of introductory information at the start of the event or during the first intermission (for those of you who arrive late or need a little liquid courage before signing up). If you have an amazing (theme-related) story that must be told, email us at with a brief synopsis of your story and you may be a pre-selected storyteller for the evening.

For those who wish to tell stories, there are several guidelines:

Stories must be brief! 5-7 minutes
Stories must be TRUE.
Stories must be from personal experience!
Stories must be STORIES. No readings, no props, no notes, no standup!
It is a good idea to have the last line of your story in mind.

For additional questions about the event or for storytelling support, please message either of us directly! For guidelines or inspiration, you can go to or


This event is entirely FREE!

The event will be filmed and recorded, so be prepared to sign a waiver granting us rights to the material if you plan to share a story. Videos from our MothUP events will be featured on The Moth website, and stories may be considered for the radio program, The Moth Radio Hour. You and your story could end up airing on over 200 public radio stations across the USA! (If you do not wish to sign a release, you may still tell a story! However, it will not be filmed or submitted to The Moth.)

The room fills up fast, so get there early to ensure a seat.
