Storytelling Intensive

This three-week intensive will help you master the art of live storytelling! The workshop covers crafting stories using the five-part story arc, delivering your best performance onstage, and how to pitch to live show and radio producers. This class culminates in a show at the downtown Literary Arts center,

where you’ll tell your story before a live audience and have your story recorded as an audio file for you to keep.

May 3 – May 24, 2018 (3 sessions plus a storytelling performance)
Thursdays, 7:00 p.m. –9:00 p.m.
Instructor: Mindy Nettifee

In addition to her many years teaching the craft of live storytelling, she has taught creative writing and performance workshops at several places, including NYU and Lewis & Clark college.
