Tell It Like It Was: Storytelling About Your Life

Maybe you’ve listened to “The Moth” on public radio or attended a story slam and imagined taking the stage yourself. In this workshop, you will learn how a story composed for performance differs from one destined for the page. You’ll listen to some terrific examples, brainstorm possibilities and choose an indelible incident to develop as a story with a compelling narrative arc. You will practice performance strategies: vocal warm-ups and theater games to hone volume, pacing, inflection and stage presence—the tools that allow you to connect deeply with your audience. Beginning and seasoned writers/storytellers are welcome! 

Bonus: You’ll have the opportunity to perform at the Story Slam that evening.
