Storytelling Summer Camp: Who is telling the story and the selection of the right details to “hook” the audience.
July 21, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm CDT
This is a four session introduction to the art and craft of storytelling. The topics vary by session – come to one or come to all.
Want to tell stories? Want to tell better stories? If you are interested in sharing traditional stories with your children and family, or students or others, these four sessions will help you learn how to select and learn age appropriate traditional stories. If you are interested in telling personal stories whether in the 5-6 minute Moth format or the more comprehensive longer format, these four sessions will help you decide where to begin, where to end, what to include and why it matters. This is a hands- on process which will have you telling stories in each session. Sign up for all four sessions or drop by for any one of them.
July 7th – How to find and learn stories regardless of whether they are traditional or personal.
July 14th – Beginnings, endings and how we get from one to the other.
July 21st – Who is telling the story and the selection of the right details to “hook” the audience.
July 28th – Humor and heart. What makes the story work and why it matters.
Each $20 session is from 7:00 to 8:30 PM Central time on the Zoom platform.
