I offer an array of workshops based on both storytelling and writing.
Record the story of your life using the books you love. In this 2-part workshop you will explore how your life has been shaped by the books you’ve read and then create an autobiographical bibliography. Participants may swap the bibliobiographies; adding new books and authors to their personal future reading lists.
Storytelling for Writers Workshop
Writing stories is different than telling stories. You will learn how oral storytelling can support your writing, become aware of your potential as a storyteller, learn important elements of organization and presentation, and gain confidence in speaking to an audience.
The Art and Craft of Personal Storytelling Workshop
In this fun and instructive workshop, participants will learn the basic skills of oral storytelling. If you want to pass on family stories for your grandchildren or create a cohesive and lasting story for your organization, learning the essential elements of story creation and presentation will give you confidence and inspiration. This workshop can be custom designed for your organization.
