Bring a short story and shape it with storytellers from across the country.
Each Sunday will focus on a different aspect of storytelling. You will tell every week. You will learn specific techniques and discuss how to use them. You'll watch videos of skilled tellers.  Best of all, you will try exercises with partners and small groups, where you can get to know others and see how they respond to your tale.

 

Topics:


Week One:    Keep them listening- tension, contrast, movement, urgency and stakes

Week Two:    Make them care- develop and reveal compelling characters

Week Three: Draw them in- sensory details and setting

Week Four:   Telling Dynamically- - rhythms, repetitions and patterns; volume; pacing; the power of the pause;

                           body language and voice    

Week Five:    Tell it Tight-editing to make every moment count

Week Six:       Show your stuff- Perform your final story for the group and receive feedback

Even the best storytellers can feel frazzled in the strange new world of Zoom.

This playful, interactive workshop will give you experience with virtual telling in a safe and friendly space. You’ll get feedback from other storytellers who are learning right along with you.

You’ll discover:

  • how to look and sound your best on camera

  • common mistakes to avoid

  • which delivery style works for you

You’ll need:

  • a device with a webcam and microphone  (computer, ipad, tablet or Smartphone) and an internet connection

  • Zoom software (free download)
