INTRO TO PERSONAL STORYTELLING @ Portland Community College
Taught by Back Fence PDX story producer, BRIAN S. ELLIS!
Tell your true, personal stories out loud. Learn to shape and construct your story using the tools of the oral tradition, and practice for an audience using tried and true performance methods.
Over the course of our lives, stories become the connective tissue that holds our personal narratives together. Each of us has many stories to tell, and being able to tell those stories in a compelling way can be as important to that larger narrative as the stories themselves. This class is designed to give practical tools to aid in the construction and performance of stories.
