The Storytellers Tool kit

In this session, I detail what skills are used by the performing artist, and lead participants in exercises to recognize those elements in themselves. This workshop is usually for beginning tellers.

The Voice of the Storyteller

Voice is the main communication tool used by storytellers, and this workshop enables participants to recognize their strengths and areas for change. These sessions can be as short as 90 minutes, or intensives as long as 3 hours. This workishop ios tailored for each audience.

Learn a Story in an Hour

This is a basic introduction to the process of learning a story for performance- be that on stage, in front of a classroom, or with one's family.

In all of my workshops, participants leave with handouts of exerciese and bibliographies of materials for further reading and exploration.

I can craft a workshop or seminar to meet your particular needs. Let's talk telling!
