Storytelling has exploded over the last several years, with showcases, slams, and podcasts surfacing daily. People from all walks of life are taking the stage to share their own stories in front of packed houses across the country. In the workplace, solid storytelling is a crucial component in communication, and who doesn’t want to be able to share memorable stories over dinner with friends? 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 cover everything from story generation and structure to the fine details of delivery. Writers are welcome, but you don’t have to put a single word on the page in order to tell an excellent story.
