Do you love stories and want to learn to write and perform them?  Are you a storyteller who desires to polish your skills?  Although Story Arts of Minnesota isn't running classes at this time, many of our members lead courses, classes, and workshops which we list below.  If you know of storytelling learning opportunities that should appear here, please send the information to storyartsmn@gmail.com.  


The Story Studio 2-Day Workshop

Saturday, January 26, 2019, 12pm-4pm (approximately) AND
Sunday, January 27, 2019, 12-2:30pm 

The Phoenix Theatre
2605 Hennepin Ave. South, Minneapolis, MN 55408

The Story Studio's 2-Day Storytelling Workshop (https://thestorystudio.org) is a perfect weekend intensive for those dipping their toes into storytelling waters for the first time, AND for seasoned performers wanting to brush up on skills or focus on a new or challenging project. The 7-or-so hours of class include lecture, discussion, individual and group exercises, performance time, and feedback and critique. Students will leave having developed and presented at least the first draft of a 5-7 minute personal story to perform onstage, and will come away with tools for developing narrative material that are applicable to a wide variety of settings: theatre, story slams, written memoir, podcasts, lectures, public speaking, TED talks, business presentations, and more. 

Saturday consists of interactive exercises that will help students identify and refine a story to tell to the class. On Sunday, students will perform their stories in class, and receive in-depth feedback from their instructor and classmates.

This class is open to everyone. No experience required.
Taught by Minneapolis actor, writer and storyteller Amy Salloway (www.facebook.com/awkwardmomentonstage).
