This is a hands-on creative development weekend perfect for dipping your toes into the storytelling waters or finding new stories if you’re a seasoned pro.
Done right, stories have the power to do extraordinary things.
They make us laugh, they make us cry. They move us in ways we can sometimes never expect.
Everyone’s got a great story, but not everyone is adept at telling one. For every good story, there are a dozen bad ones – don’t let it be yours.
So how can you avoid telling stories that are cheesy, overly heartfelt, boring, inauthentic and difficult to engage with? YOU LEARN FROM THE BEST
This workshop is perfect for dipping your toes into the storytelling waters or finding new stories if you’re a seasoned pro.
