Your Story Matters – Storytelling & The Art of Personal Narrative
Storytelling is not only a popular art form at live events and podcasts worldwide; it can also help individuals develop and share their experiences and unique perspectives with the word. This workshop will focus on helping participants discover, share and develop their own stories, which can in turn be used for personal essays, live performances, and more.
