What you'll learn in this storytelling class:

The 6-session Level 1 storytelling workshop provides students with an encouraging, constructive environment in which to practice storytelling each week and receive feedback from their instructor and peers. Exercises in class focus on classic story structuring, building suspense, eliciting emotion, recreating drama, digging deeper into a story’s meaning, and using your voice and body to add levels to your listeners’ experience, so that your story stays with them. The class size will be limited to allow maximum individual attention and storytelling practice time for each student in each class session.

This class is open to all students and is a prerequisite for our level 2 class. No experience required.

Great introduction to storytelling. I liked how many opportunities I got to practice my story and really refine it. That said, I wish there was more class material in the course.
