Storytelling Workshops  

There are many ways to tell a story, and many different kinds of stories to tell. Storytelling involves developing a vision of a series of events, and then communicating this vision to listeners/readers.  How do you tell a good story? How do you write a good story? In a series of workshops, we will explore these questions.

This course will look at the traditional story, the memoir piece and the fictional creation. 

Tutor: Shelia Quealey
