Event description
How to tell a story from a seed or an idea and take it with you to own the stage. This is a six-week storytelling course plus a class show.

About this event

Want to learn how to tell a story from the creator of What's Your Story Slam? Of course, you do!

Anna Ong will teach you how to take personal experiences from your life and create universal and identifiable stories for an audience. You'll be surprised at how engaging your personal stories can be! Whether you're a What's Your Story Slam Champion in the making, a writer seeking to fine-tune your narrative skills, a start-up founder looking to pump up your pitch, or someone who wants the confidence and ability to get in front of people and be heard -- this class will help.

In this in-person class, you will learn the basic elements of telling a narrative story, how to take a crowd by surprise and make them care, how to be real and truthful on stage, and how to discover and communicate the real meaning behind your experience. This class will make public speaking a safe and enjoyable experience.

Classes will include verbal and written exercises, examples of performances from some of the finest storytellers, and various techniques and approaches to prepare yourself for the performance of your story.

What you'll get out of the class: at least one polished, six-to-eight minute story -- which could be a What's Your Story Slam winner, the beginning of a one-person show, or a personal essay -- and the fundamentals needed to develop future stories.

The class concludes with a graduation performance where you will perform your personal story in front of a live, super-supportive audience (max of 50 guests).

Max number of participants: 12

Class Schedule - Every Thursday 630 pm to 830 pm

Jul 22, 29

Class Show Sep 2 (Thu) @ The Projector

Hear it from previous participants of Anna's Storytelling Courses

"Anna is a gifted storytelling coach. She has the exceptional ability to simplify the complex and draw one out of their comfort zone. I took the program as I wanted to gain confidence in public speaking, I have noticed improvements in a short amount of time. Never did I imagine myself telling a story on stage let alone look forward to with excitement. The program was loads of fun, I will be joining again."

- Farrah

"Seed to Stage” is an excellent basic course for aspiring storyteller who wishes to reach out to their audiences on a soul-to-soul level, I enjoy thoroughly at each session. The lessons were easy to understand and Anna was kind enough to coax the story out of us. "

- Horus

"The class is awesome in helping me develop, pivot, and make my story punchier. Great tips for stage presentations!"

- Isabella

"I have always loved listening to and telling stories. The storytelling workshop conducted by Anna Ong truly played on my interest and skill. During the Covid-19 lockdown, I decided to hone my skills and also learn something new. This virtual workshop was just what I needed!

Anna is a dedicated coach. She invested her time and energy in each and every one of us. Our stories evolved wonderfully over the course of 4 weeks, culminating into a successful showcase.

Thank you, Anna! You are amazing."

-Niloufer

"Anna is a great coach. I was inspired by her personal stories and storytelling style. Her comments helped me shape my story into a fun, short and lively personal narrative to share in a live show. She is also an amazing entertainer, making the audience feel part of the show from the moment they join."

-Ana

"Anna creates a very comfortable and safe environment for her storytelling classes. She puts in a lot of thought to craft a lesson that is both interesting and relevant to people looking to apply storytelling to their work. Despite the varying level and background of the participants, she is able to work off everyone's dynamics and adapt the class so that everyone gets a lot out of it. Most of all, it was very enjoyable and Anna is never without a smile or good humour. I recommend this class for anyone who'd like to develop their narratives, especially in a corporate environment as Anna's extensive work and life experiences and her intuitive teaching will help you put form to your stories."

-Lihong

"Anna is a magic worker. I’ve never stood in front of an audience to share a story before. Anna went out of her way to make sure it’ll be successful and that it’s comfortable for me. She helped me by choosing a good story, by sharing the best method in story-telling 101 and by coaching me to curate a beautiful and impactful story."
