Welcome to StoryTelling: 10 Things You Need to Know


Saturday, October 21 & 28, 2017 from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm 

If you want to get people’s attention, tell them a story. A well-told story will draw listeners to you, whether your purpose is to entertain, educate, inform or sell a product or idea. The secret to telling a good story is to learn some of the basics and practice them. You can gain knowledge and confidence in our two-day workshop, “Welcome to Storytelling: 10 Things You Need to Know."
You will have an opportunity to learn how to choose and present a story. You will hear stories from a variety of genres told by experienced tellers; learn and practice vocal warm-ups; try out memory exercises; and discover storytelling resources. In addition, you will have a chance to learn, practice, and present a short story to an audience at a concert on day two, one week after the initial session. You will be welcome to invite family and friends to hear you tell in a warm and supportive environment.
