Introduction to Personal Storytelling

Ira Glass of This American Life says, “Great stories happen to people who know how to tell them.” In this workshop, Moth StorySLAM and GrandSLAM champion storyteller Terry Wolfisch Cole will share effective and engaging personal storytelling tips and tricks that are equally applicable on stage, in a business setting, on a date, or with your grandchildren on your lap. You will have opportunities to discover your stories (yes, interesting things have happened to you!), to select one to craft for performance, and to practice telling it in front of others. Please bring paper and pen to class.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
