Telling Stories for the Season: Scared but not too Scary

The wind whistles through the dry corn stalks and pumpkins put on their biggest grins for All Hallows' Eve. Come discover different kinds of spooky folk stories, how to chill your listener without terrifying and the elements of crafting a thrilling tale! We will discuss how to tell scary stories for different ages and groups; as well as why scary tales are important for emotional development. Learn tips for crafting a story on the fly, as well as how to captivate your audience. And most importantly, discover your own storytelling voice.

Join us for the first seasonal storytelling workshop in our series: Telling Stories for the Season with Instructor Ann Harding.

Ann's storytelling began with hearing and telling stories as a child. Her love of stories flourished during her time as a preschool/kindergarten teacher, and before graduating from Naropa University, she wrote her final thesis on storytelling and how it supports secure psychological attachment between children and caregivers. Ann's warm and friendly spirit will make participants feel right at home, comfortable to explore their own voice and imagine the potential that storytelling can hold for their lives.

Please note: This workshop will be held at the rural and enchanting 63rd Street Farm, and is a partially outdoor--around a campfire workshop. Participants will split their time between an indoor space, and an outdoor fire circle.

No experience necessary. Please bring a notebook and pen. For ages 14 and older, minimum of 4 participants. This workshop is hosted by the Living Arts School, a Folk School in Boulder County. Pre-registration is required to attend.

Cost: $45
