Personal storytelling empowers storytellers to embrace an “aha” moment in their lives that changes them somehow in a way that is universally felt and understood by their audience. In the second workshop, learn about the use of comparisons, opposites, surprise, humor, dialogue, and the five senses to enrich the story. Discuss the importance of authenticity and vulnerability in story crafting. Program registration will close 30 minutes prior to the start of the program. Participants will be emailed a Zoom access code 30 minutes before the start of the program, so please include your email in the registration. Please note: You must sign into the room prior to the start of the program. Admittance to the classroom will close five minutes after the program's start time. Space is limited.
