Event description
Interested in storytelling but don't know where to start? These workshops by professional storyteller Sheila Wee are for you.

About this Event

If you are interested in storytelling, but don’t know where to start, these workshops facilitated by Sheila Wee, are for you. In two 7-hour modules of hands-on training (over 2 consecutive Saturdays), you will gain a firm grounding in storytelling skills. You will leave with one ready-to-tell story and the tools and confidence to learn and tell more stories.

In the second of a two-part workshop, further develop your storytelling skills. Discover your own personal storytelling style. Find out which types of stories work for different audiences and how to use an effective story architecture to craft stories. Through group, partner and individual exercises, learn how to add details to make the story uniquely yours, and learn effective story rehearsal and performance techniques.

Outline for Introduction to Storytelling II:

  • Which types of stories work for different age groups
  • Understanding the ingredients for an effective storytelling experience
  • Being in the moment - working on being spontaneous in your storytelling
  • How to use effective story architecture in crafting your stories
  • Discovering your natural storytelling style
  • Going deeper into the story for better performance
  • Reflections
