WEDS NOV 6-20 & DEC 4

Taught by our own Producer/Host  MINDY NETTIFEE.

This four-week intensive 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. The theme of this particular intensive will be stories of healing. How do we talk about the events of our lives that truly shaped and transformed us—that changed how we saw ourselves, others, and the world? 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.
