The Secret Society of Twisted Storytellers was created by writer, actor and award-winning performer Satori Shakoor. Satori is a veteran of live performance with national and international awards, credits and acknowledgments for her accomplishments in the arts: music, theatre, storytelling and comedy. Satori is the recipient of a “Spirit of Detroit” Award. Satori is a Moth Mainstage storyteller and host. One of her stories, “Too Much” aired on “The Moth Radio Hour” on NPR and is available for free download via The Moth Podcast and/or Moth App. The Secret Society Of Twisted Storytellers will be forever grateful to those old black ladies from the South who told her mesmerizing stories in childhood; and The Moth for its mission, inspiration and support. Satori hosts The Moth storyslam in Ann Arbor, sponsored by Michigan Radio 91.
