This four-week intensive with Back Fence PDX Producer Mindy Nettifee will help you master the art of live true personal storytelling! The workshop covers crafting stories using the five-part story arc, delivering your best performance onstage, and a treasure trove of secrets to this satisfying artform. And as a special twist, the theme of this particular intensive will be stories of healing. How do we tell stories of our traumas and dark nights of the soul? How do we talk about the events of our lives that truly shaped and transformed us, change how we saw ourselves, others, and the world? And how do we do this in a way that acts as the final verse of a healing spell – finishing and integrating our healing process? This class is appropriate for therapists and those working in the healing arts, as well as any and all who feel the call to tell the story of their personal healing one-on-one, in public, or in memoir or personal essay form. This class culminates in a show at the downtown Literary Arts center, where you’ll tell your story before a live audience and have your story recorded as an audio file for you to keep.
