Tricia Rose Burt is a frequent guest storyteller with the acclaimed international storytelling organization The Moth. A Moth StorySlam winner, she’s told numerous stories on the Moth MainStage and her stories are broadcast on the The Moth Radio Hour and The Moth Podcast.
Her first Moth MainStage story, How To Draw A Nekkid Man, generated thousands of hits on social media websites and was downloaded more than a quarter million times, giving her numerous chances to teach audiences that the correct pronunciation of the word naked is “nekkid.” The story also appears on The Best of The Moth Radio Hour CD Vol. 19.
Her one-woman show, also named How to Draw a Nekkid Man (formerly known as I Will Be Good), was selected for the 2015 United Solo Festival in NYC, Nashville’s 2015 Sideshow Fringe Festival, the 2011 New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC) and further honored to appear in the FringeNYC Encore Series. Enjoy some highlights here. Tricia has performed the show throughout New England and the South under the direction of New York City-based Mia Rovegno.
In 2015, Tricia released an audio version of the show on CD Baby and iTunes.
She continues to perform on storytelling stages across the country, including NYC’s The StoryCollider and Out by Ten, LA’s Spark Off Rose, and Nashville’s The Local Show, Ten x 9, and First Time Stories.
When not on stage, Tricia teaches the power of storytelling, conducting workshops for some of America’s top businesses and institutions as an instructor with The Moth’s corporate program. She also works with her own clients, which include the Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter Amy Grant and her Creative Discovery Weekends; Vanderbilt University; and individual writers and performers of all levels.
In addition to contributing to both online and print magazines, Tricia is currently writing a memoir and maintains a (somewhat) weekly blog. She’s also an award-winning visual artist, but expanded her creative focus from studio art to writing and performing in 2008.
