Introduction to Personal Storytelling Workshop – Huntington
November 2, 2019 @ 11:00 am - November 10, 2019 @ 1:00 pm$75
Stories are powerful. Stories are persuasive. Stories, well told, can move people change how they act, and how they think and feel about themselves, others and the world. Stories also serve as a catalyst for building community, and for unlocking hidden stories that otherwise might never be told.
In this intensive, two weekend-long beginner’s workshop, participants will fully engage with the instructor and each other to uncover a compelling story from their lives, and learn how to build that story into a powerful narrative that grab listeners’ attention and engagement. Participants will learn the basic building blocks of dynamic storytelling, the common themes that make audiences care and then use that knowledge to craft a persuasive and engaging story that they can use to share with family, friends and others.
The workshop will run for two hours Saturday and Sunday for two consecutive weekends and will then culminate in a live performance where family and friends are invited to attend.
