What is Life Out Loud?

Life Out Loud is all about the art of storytelling.

We provide the opportunity for real life stories to be found, crafted and told to live audiences which allows for entertaining, authentic and thoughtful experiences to be shared between people.

Life Out Loud brings storytellers from all backgrounds and levels of experience to the stage to share true stories from their lives.

Our events feature storytellers who tell personal, true stories based around a theme. All of them show courage, and we show all of them kindness.

Make a Pitch

Anybody can be a storyteller! Everybody should be a storyteller! We are always looking for fresh faces to tell their first story on stage. In fact, it is our goal to empower new storytellers to take the stage in every show.

The team has extensive experience training speakers of all levels - from people struggling to stand up in front of a group, to professional presenters in industry. So if you are motivated to give it a go, we can help you tell a great story.

If you'd like to tell a story, start thinking about some ideas that you think might work. Pitch us your story here, then we can either catch up for a coffee or have an online meeting to help you get started.

Remember, storytelling involves your voice, a microphone and a journey shared with the audience. It must be your own story, and please, no cliffhangers or offensive material (read the full set of guidelines here).

Every storyteller has the opportunity to be recorded on film and audio.

Our Team

In 2018, three storytelling enthusiasts realised Brisbane had no live storytelling shows and decided to change that.

Meet the team of three behind Life Out Loud Storytelling:


Joshua Morotti


Electrical Engineer by day, budding entrepreneur by night; storyteller always. Joshua has finally found purpose for all of those hours learning sound and lighting in high school.

Kate Norris


Parent, business-owner, skincare-enthusiast, storyteller. Kate believes that no human experience is unique; we're never alone in our feelings, insecurities or desires.

Thomas Krafft


A business owner, a PowerPoint designer, a shipwreck hunter and can only snap the fingers of his left hand. Thomas tells stories that make people laugh at the 'learning opportunities' from his life.
