Square One Storytelling: A Four-Week Personal Narrative Workshop (OCTOBER 6th-27th)
Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage.  ~ Brene Brown, from Daring Greatly

There are few things that people fear more than revealing their vulnerabilities, yet vulnerability is the gateway to deeper connection and wholehearted living. Storytelling is most successful when storytellers can share the full truth of the most meaningful moments of their lives bravely with others. Learning how to do this skillfully can alter every aspect of a person's life in profound and far-reaching ways.

Beginners to advanced students are welcome at this powerful workshop combining vulnerability, storytelling, performance, and craft. Participants will learn about the art, science, and psychology of vulnerability as it relates to the art of storytelling. We will learn what elements good stories have and how to mine our lives for resonant tales and finally, how to craft them for the page and stage. The class will be capped at 6, which allows plenty of time for discussing, for practicing new strategies, to workshopping our stories, and sharing structured feedback.

If you're not afraid, do it! If you are afraid, then definitely do it. This is a no risk, non-judgmental space to hone your unique voice. The world needs your voice! We'll meet noon to 3pm on Sundays, October 6th-27th. I can't wait to get started.

Course Fees: $195
You will also receive a personal strategy folder full of tips, tricks, and reading selections.
