"Tricia Rose Burt is a born storyteller. Her voice mesmerizes, whether you are reading her on the page or listening to her speak in front of a live audience. Tricia puts a new, thoroughly original spin on the Southern belle. You will howl with laughter just moments before you are deeply moved." - Catherine Burns, artistic director of The Moth

TRB to Lead Workshop at SXSW

I’m delighted to report I’ve been asked by Global Citizens — an organization whose goal is to eradicate extreme poverty by the year 2030 — to lead a storytelling workshop on March 17 at South by Southwest (SXSW) the international music, film and interactive festival held each year in Austin, Texas. More than 100 non-profit leaders and tech entrepreneurs will attend the session. After the conference, I’ll be heading back to Nashville to finish up my sabbatical, which ends March 31. Time has flown!
