One-day Storytelling 101 Intensive workshop

Stories move us, touch our hearts and connect us deeply with ourselves and others.  And with a bit of guidance and inspiration, anyone can access the magic, art and craft of storytelling and transform memories into engaging, compelling stories.

In this one-day dynamic, interactive workshop you will develop the ideas, structures and skills to shine as a storyteller.  Whether you’re looking to express yourself creatively, bring special memories to life, share your stories with the world, make friends and/or tap into the healing powers of storytelling, this is the class for you!
