Playing with Story Structure


2 in stock


Do you want to deepen your understanding of the art and craft of storytelling? In this intimate two-day virtual workshop, participants who have taken Oral Storytelling 101* or a Discover Your Story workshop** will become more aware of the types of artistic choices they can make in storytelling. Participants will also be challenged to find multiple meanings in their stories as they experiment with structure.

On Day 1, we will cover the role of story structure and review single story structures. On Day 2, we will cover multi-story structures to add to participants’ storytelling repertoires.

Each day, participants will be expected to engage in active listening, share story outlines, and flex their imagination as they create and re-interpret stories in a supportive, creative small group environment.

Instructor: Bernetta “Penny” Parson
