Newbie Workshop - Storytelling Basics

Have you been to show and wondered how to start telling stories? Or maybe you've wondered about what makes a story work?

This workshop, hosted by Rachel, Sunil and Darcy, is for people who have never told a story at one of our shows-- the workshop will spend more time on storytelling basics and then give you an opportunity to share your own story.

      Just develop the one you told! Remember to bring in some conflict and resolution to the story to change it from an anecdote to a story!

      Michael, the story was fine. You need to need to focus on why you are telling the story (there is a reason to your story) and then the story will take shape.

    Would absolutely love to attend, especially as I'm a newbie to this so the workshop is precisely for me (and others like me), but unfortunately I'm waitlisted. Increase the number of attendee spots, please?

      Hi Rock, we've limited the numbers because we want everybody to have a chance to participate. But we'll try to run another newbie event soon.

    What kind of story should I prepare?

    August 2, 2013

    • Tom T.

      Hey Mary, you don't need to prepare too much-- just have a couple of ideas for a story-- maybe no more than 3-4 minutes to start.

  • Alice Z.

    Hi thanks! I've never been a workshop and I wonder is there anything should attendees prepare? Like a story idea or something? what topic?

    August 2, 2013

    • Tom T.

      Hi Alice, it will help if you come with an idea for a story-- there isn't a set topic for this workshop (so you don't need to follow this month's theme "On the job" unless you want to!)
