Storytelling has exploded over the last several years, with showcases, slams, podcasts and zooms. People from all walks of life are taking the stage to share their stories. It’s both a way to entertain and delve into our own lives. In the workplace, companies are beginning to understand the power of story in both defining themselves and communication.
This workshop is open to all experience levels, and everyone from the beginner to the seasoned storyteller will benefit from this fun, work-on-your-feet approach to discovering and developing your own unique voice and material. We will start with the components of a strong story, analyze examples, and generate our own stories in the class. Please bring pen and paper.
**PARTICIPANTS MUST HAVE PROOF OF VACCINATION
