Whether in three hours or over the course of a few days, the best way to learn storytelling is by getting together and doing it. I've taught in universities, corporate settings, private events, and one on one. My clients have included: PRX, The Moth, The Covenant Foundation, and Northeastern University. And I've worked with diverse populations from recently incarcerated teenagers, educators and community leaders, to survivors of the attacks on 9/11. You can learn more about me here.
the CRAFT of personal narrative
This workshop focuses on:
- Why story matters
- How to chose your story
- The basic story structure
- Crafting your story
- Performing your story
THE ART OF PERSONAL NARRATIVE (ADVANCED)
Designed for people who have already crafted a story, this workshop focuses on pushing your story to a deeper place. We'll play with:
- Using structure to get more impact
- Humor as a tool
- "Painting the scene" (making us feel like we're there)
- "Feel like the first time" (striving for authenticity and novelty in a story you've told a hundred times)
There are many lessons to be learned from storytelling that can be incorporated into the day to day workings of your institution. Whether you're crafting a new campaign, pitching to a client, or simply looking to gain the confidence it takes to speak in front of a group, learning storytelling can change the way you do business. And because you know best what you need, let's talk about tailoring these workshops to best fit your needs.
