The Story Studio's 2-Day Storytelling Workshop (www.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, at slams, open mikes, in cabarets or podcasts...and will come away with tools to build personal narrative in all kinds of settings far beyond the stage.
Day 1 consists of exercises that will help students identify and refine a story to tell to the class. Day 2 is when 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.amysalloway.com).

"Ya know how everyone has that thing that comes so naturally to them that they don't realize what a skill it is - they think anyone can do it? That thing for Amy is storytelling, and communicating to others what a story needs, what will make it work." -- Recent 2-Day Workshop Participant
"Genuine, knowledgeable, funny. Taught a great class." -- Recent Course Participant
