The Art & Craft of Telling Personal Stories
w/ Penelope Starr
April 3-May 8 (and private lessons)
Students will become aware of their own potential as storytellers and of the power of storytelling in their personal and work lives in this focused workshop.
Anyone who puts words together would benefit from the experience of developing a personal narrative and presenting it orally to an audience. It employs a different, yet related, skill set than the act of writing and one can strengthen the other.
In this 6-week workshop students will discover a framework for selecting, perfecting and performing personal stories through a combination of instruction and interactive, playful activities. Students will uncover their private reserve of stories, learn to organize a story for telling, share feedback with the other storytellers, and become more comfortable presenting to an audience.
The workshop includes:
Tuesdays April 3, 10, 17 and May 1 - 4 evenings of group work, 6:30 - 10 p.m.
1 private lesson, individually scheduled the week of April 25
Friday, May 4, - informal performance, 7 - 9 p.m.
Tuesday, May 8 - wrap-up celebration and feedback group, 6:30 - 10 p.m.
The cost for 20 hours of instruction is $200.
Workshop size is limited to 12 students. Please make sure you can make a commitment to attend all dates. Registration ends on March 27 so sign up soon with a $50 non-refundable deposit.
