Introduction to Personal Storytelling

Cost:  $85 full/ $55 concession

A crafted, well told story is part gift, part message. In this workshop led by storyteller Kate Lawrence, participants will learn how to find, craft and tell stories from their life experience. You will learn story structure, how to look for story worthy memories and the crafting process that turns the clay of life into story. Participants will develop a list of possible story memories, choose one to develop, work in small groups to practice, and then tell and receive feedback from the group. And of course you will hear lots of great stories.  Numbers for this workshop are limited to six.
