Workshops

2-Day Level 1 Live Online Group Storytelling Workshop ($150)

These online workshops will be conducted very much like our in-person workshops, with storytelling exercises and opportunities to share your stories and get feedback from your instructor and fellow students. We’ll be using the Zoom online platform to host our video calls, and we’ll send you all the info you need on how to join your class when you sign up.

 

Our 2-Day Level 1 Workshop is perfect for dipping your toes into storytelling waters for the first time, or a quick brush up on your skills if you’re a seasoned pro. Exercises in class focus on classic story structuring, building suspense, eliciting emotion, recreating drama, digging deeper into a story’s meaning, and using your voice and body to add levels to your listeners’ experience, so that your story stays with them. 

 

Day 1 consists of exercises that will help you identify and refine a story to tell to the class. Day 2 is when students will perform their stories in class and receive in-depth feedback from their instructor and classmates.

This class is open to all students. No experience required.

Our 2-Day Finding New Stories Workshop is perfect for beginners and experienced tellers who are looking for new ways to develop material for true, personal stories.

Open to all who have completed a Story Studio workshop. The focus of this 5-week class is on refining your authentic voice and honing performance skills, as well as working in-depth on new or existing stories.

You will work toward mastering the techniques you have already learned, and practice crafting and refining stories in a supportive group with other advanced students. The instructor will suggest possible projects to work on, but you can choose to focus on whatever will be most productive for you personally, such as components of a one-person show, a 5-minute story, a 20-minute story, or stories with a specific emotional or stylistic goal. The class size will be limited to allow maximum individual attention and storytelling practice time for each student in each class session.
