Storyteller: The Art of Writing for the Stage

from 138.00

The act of storytelling builds community. From local Nashville shows such as That Time of the Month and Ten x Nine, to nationally recognized storytelling outlets like The Moth and Risk!, the popularity of sharing our true stories grows.  This workshop is open to writers at all levels who are ready to tap into that storytelling community by bringing their own stories from the page to the stage. After using prompts to develop a true, personal essay, we will delve into the art and craft of live storytelling by analyzing structure, voice, and theme. Participants will have the chance to see a story from initial conception to final performance, with critique and editing along the way.

After the final session, all participants will perform on stage in front of an audience of invitees.
