Seminar Description

Have you taken a storytelling, improv, or writing class and not wanted it to end? This is the class after the class, the one where you keep those creative gears turning. Maybe you need to grease up those wheels some, but you know it always feels better to create art out of your life. In this workshop, we will get into the guts of your stories. There will probably be glitter and a few tears. Through structured feedback, the class will become a single unit for the support of all. Storytelling will take you there. This seminar also includes an hour of private coaching and the opportunity to share your story live as part of Story Sessions.

Five sessions. Registration – $185
