It’s a perfect introduction to the transformational world of storytelling.  

In the first & second class, we’ll cover the basics of narrative story structure, adding elements like sensorial details, emotional arc, suspense, theme, humor and authenticity. You’ll learn what makes for a great story. There will be interactive exercises and prompts to help you brainstorm new stories and/or fine tune the stories that you’re already sharing. You’ll share early story ideas with each other, and learn how to give supportive feedback. 

In the classes that follow, we’ll dig deeper as you practice skills by telling your stories orally and receiving constructive feedback from Gail and classmates. With these simple tools, you’ll surprise yourself and your audience. Classes are adapted to the individual and group dynamic. Each class builds on the previous. Join us!!
