Classes and Workshops

Along with producing a monthly storytelling show, the producers of Testify also coach storytellers and teach workshops and classes, from helping beginners get started to helping established storytellers refine their work.

June 30th – Starting Your Story

On Saturday June 30th, Testify is leading a workshop on Starting Your Story at Shiny Object from 2pm – 5pm.

Storytelling is an essential form of communication, and the ability to tell a powerful and cohesive personal story is an important, if not always intuitive, skill. A common struggle many storytellers face, especially those new to the practice, is figuring out what story they want to tell and a finding a clear way to tell it.

In this interactive, three hour workshop we will focus on story fundamentals: what a story is (and what it isn’t), the key elements of a story, how to choose a story, and then how to start telling it! Through discussion, activities and exercises, participants will leave the workshop with at least one story idea and initial draft, a better understanding of storytelling – and perhaps even themselves.

We have reached capacity for this workshop!
