Online Personal Storytelling

Online Personal Storytelling

First person storytelling shows are all the rage on stages and podcasts across the country.  In this class, you will learn how to take true events from your own life and weave them into engaging performances. We will work on presentation, story structure, different approaches, and creating your own unique style.  Each week, students will be given a new assignment for how to structure a story.  Students choose their own subject matter for their personal stories.  This class culminates in a private online performance (invite only), where each student will get to tell a 3-7 minute personal story.

 

  • Amanda’s Online Personal Storytelling class was amazing! I learned about myself and built new skills. It was a cathartic experience. Highly recommend it to anyone!
