Scott Whitehair, Professional Storyteller

You are a storyteller (Yes, you!) There is no better way to connect, create community, and understand each other, ourselves, and the constantly changing world we live in than through the sharing of our stories. Storytelling is an essential skill in our school and work life, and who doesn't want to be able to spin a killer tale at a party or over coffee with friends? In a fun, failure-free environment, we will build upon the skills all human beings possess as natural born storytellers with the introduction of practical tools, engaging exercises, and guided discussion. Everything from finding our uniqe stories to the detailed techniques of telling them effectively will be explored. Each session will also feature a lab component where participants may workshop stories, if they wish, and receive safe, supportive feedback. Writers are welcome, you don't have to put a single word on the page in order to tell an excellent story. This class is open to all experience and comfort levels, and everyone from the nervous beginner to the comfortable public speaker will benefit from the work-on-your-feet approach to unlocking their full potential as storytellers.

Please note: this is a workshop series with meetings on four consecutive Fridays (2/5-2/26) and a final event on 3/5. Participants should plan to attend all workshop meetings.

Space in this workshop is limited. Registration will be approved on a first come first serve basis. Zoom link will be provided in a welcome email prior to the first workshop.
