Middlebury

A network of microphilanthropy that supports Middlebury students.

The Middlebury Moth-UP is a live storytelling event held every other Thursday. The Middlebury Moth-UP brings together students, staff, and townspeople to tell stories on a theme. There are only two rules: 1. All stories must be true 2. No notes. We have been borrowing a digital recorder and are seeking funding to purchase one for the project.

The Middlebury Moth-UP is a live storytelling event held every other Thursday in The Gamut Room student café on campus. Based on The Moth, a non-profit organization founded in 1997, The Middlebury Moth-UP brings together students, staff, and townspeople to tell stories on a theme. There are only two rules: 1. All stories must be true 2. No notes. We were inspired by The Moth Podcast, which we listen to obsessively. In the long term we hope to continue to organize biweekly storytelling events that bring together students, staff, and people from town. We have been borrowing a digital recorder and are seeking funding to purchase one for the project.

    We’re extremely excited that we’ve now reached our fundraising goal to buy a new Olympus LS-10 quality handheld recorder. This will give our podcast higher sound quality. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed! You can listen to our latest Moth event from March 17th, “The First Time I Everm” at http://www.themothmiddlebury.mypodcast.com.
