Event

Storysmithing 101
Keep practicing even after the Festival!  Check out Living Out Loud for more storytelling training with Tina Devine, and August Tarrier's memoir workshop The First Person Voice to continue your storytelling journey after the Festival is over.  Attendance at "Storysmithing 101" is encouraged but not required for these workshops.


Everybody has a story to tell. Come share yours in an intimate setting with other storytellers. Well begin with an introduction to the art of telling a personal story in any form, then break into three groups, each focusing on a different approach: written, oral or digital. In the breakout session of your choice, you will learn techniques for discovering your authentic voice, and have a chance to share your first attempts, ask questions and receive professional guidance.



Those who wish to develop their own projects more fully may return for extended sessions to be held in the following weeks.
