We’re all Storytellers: Learning the Craft of True Life Storytelling Workshop Series

Publié 2022-11-10

QWF StoryScaping Fall 2022

The Regional Association of West Quebecers is pleased to partner with the Quebec Writers' Federation's StoryScaping project to offer a 3-part workshop series, We’re all Storytellers: Learning the Craft of True Life Storytelling, with Nisha Coleman. Join us on Tuesdays, December 6, 13, & 20 from 6:30-8:30 pm. Free virtual series! All are welcome.

This dynamic online workshop aims to reconnect the participants with their natural storytelling selves. Participants get to know each other and understand quickly that they are already storytellers. With a segment on story structures, building tension, layered meanings, scenes, sensory details, and beginnings and endings, participants begin to conceptualize the story they want to tell by the end of the class and gain valuable insight by working in pairs and small groups. An additional segment on performance techniques equips them not only for their final “performance” but to be a better communicator in their lives at home, school, or work. Nisha will record video of all who are willing, providing them with a lasting souvenir of the workshop.
The workshop dynamic is supportive, safe, and welcoming, allowing participants to be vulnerable, open, and honest
 
Nisha Coleman is a writer of fiction and memoir and an award-winning storyteller.
