Storytelling for the Page and Stage

Wednesdays, Feb 20 - Mar 13, 2019
6:30 - 8:30 PM

Jefferson Elementary School
26th St & Hennepin Ave S, Minneapolis, MN

Learn how to find and craft the rich, hilarious, revealing and connective stories in your own everyday life through a range of participatory exercises -- writing, discussing, and even a little improv. We'll focus on the essential building blocks that make up a story, and how to create a compelling voice in writing or in performance. Bring a notebook and pen, or a laptop computer for in-class writing time. Taught by professional actor/writer/storyteller Amy Salloway.

Sunday, March 10, 2019, 12-2:30pm 

The Phoenix Theatre

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.
