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.

May 16, 2020: Telling Your Story Workshop

1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Join Testify for a virtual workshop on developing a 5 minute story.

The ability to tell a good five minute story is key for any storyteller, and ensuring the story is both within the time limit and robust enough to create connection can be a challenge.

In this virtual workshop, Testify will teach our students the basic forms of story structures and how they can be applied to any story with prompts for finding a personal story from your memories, with an emphasis on those ideal for a five minute story. You’ll also have the opportunity to practice telling your story to the instructors and your peers in small groups, and receive guided feedback.
