The Storyteller Skillset
Here are just some things your group will learn in this workshop. First, you have to tell better stories. You must know the components of a good tale. Your stories need to have a beginning, middle, and an end. Anytime you can incorporate humor and poignancy you will elevate your story.
Including other people, dialogue, and enough description to help your audience be there will also improve the story. If you have some sort of a poignant end and/or punchline, you create a true connection with your listeners. And last, of course, relate your story to us! Relate it to your audience.
Once you know what your story will be, you need to master telling it well. You can practice writing it well absolutely. And then you must use your body, your voice, and your connection to the audience to tell your story better.

We communicate through story every day. How do we make our stories more exciting and effective? We learn to tell compelling tales. We must free our imaginations. To access this part of ourselves, we will use prompts to spark our creativity and blast through obstacles.
In this interactive workshop, participants use prompts to sharpen their communication and storytelling skills.
Participants build camaraderie as they present their stories in a supportive environment and share the process they used for developing them.
Participants then move from fiction to non-fiction stories from their own lives. They learn techniques to make their personal tales more exciting, compelling, and poignant.
