The Storywise Introduction to Storytelling Workshop 2015

If you are interested in storytelling, but don’t know where to start, this workshop facilitated by Sheila Wee, is for you.  In 9-hours (over two Saturdays) of hands-on training, it will give you a firm grounding in storytelling skills. You will leave the workshop with one ready to tell story and the tools to learn and tell more stories.

In a warm and supportive group environment, you will learn why storytelling is such a powerful form of communication; how stories can be structured to hook listener’s attention and discover your own personal storytelling style. Through group, partner and individual exercises, you will be guided through a step-by-step method of learning to tell a story without memorising the words. You will also discover how to add details to make the story uniquely yours, and learn effective story   rehearsal and performance techniques.
