Storytelling Workshop: From Talk Story to Beyond

This class has concluded. Please let us know if you’d like to see it offered again.

With Frances Kai-Hwa Wang.

Everyone can talk story, but we all know some uncles and aunties who can really talk story. In this class, we will explore different ways of telling stories, including writing, speaking, singing, podcasting, memes, video, art. We will write and share our stories, study stories that work, discuss the role of emotion, learn different oral history techniques, see how storytelling can be used at work and at home, and try different storytelling techniques and styles. Includes a field trip to a literary reading with music performance at Mokupāpapa Discovery Center on July 18. Bring a notebook and pen.
