Learn how to take your personal memories/moments and create stories that entertain and your audience. Whether you’re already a seasoned performer/writer or looking to ignite your creativity, writing, and communication skills, this oral storytelling class is for you. In this class series, 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 fine tune them as you go along. You’ll apply your new skills by telling your stories orally and receiving constructive feedback from Gail and classmates. Each class builds on the previous, as I adapt the course to your needs and the group dynamic.

Learn how to take personal memories/moments and create meaningful stories that surprise (even) you and engage your audience. It’s a perfect introduction to the transformational world of storytelling.
