Weekend Storytelling Workshop (Nov)

NOV 2023

What’s your story?

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.

How can you avoid telling stories that are cheesy, overly heartfelt, boring, inauthentic and difficult for people to engage with? YOU LEARN FROM THE BEST.

This is a hands-on creative development perfect for dipping your toes into the storytelling waters or finding new stories if you’re a seasoned pro.
