A Compelling Story: Power and Practice
2016/17 Storytelling Workshop Series
As a Guild, we take our responsibility to develop storytellers very seriously. To that end, each year, we offer four, three-hour workshop on the art, craft and business of storytelling. Past workshops have included such topics as body language, character development, beginning storytelling, finding your own stories and more.
This year our workshop committee is pleased to present our latest line-up of exciting, innovative and fun workshops! Whether you are new to storytelling or an experienced performer, you will gain insights into the many elements that make a story memorable, as well as techniques for presenting your story to an audience. Hands on excitement, new concepts and ideas.
All the workshops support each other to create a whole world of new experiences. Each workshop can stand alone, however, so don’t be put off if your calendar doesn’t allow time for the entire series.
Cost: Individual Workshops: Guild Members $25; Non-members $30

Stories in Our Lives: Finding and Shaping Your Family Stories
Presenter: Steven Henegar
Rediscover family stories as a source for performance or for sharing informally within your immediate family.
What kind of stories do families tell? Where do we hear them? Discover simple techniques for exploring memory to find new story material, and the elements of a well-crafted family story.
An exciting, hands-on workshop offers examples and simple performance techniques along with group discussion and small group exercises that provide an opportunity for everyone to explore and share.
