Over a series of four workshops, each participant will choose a story, and with the help of the group will hone it for telling at the Institute Library’s super-fun 4th annual Tellabration on Nov. 9th (public telling is optional). Stories may be of personal experience, folk tales, etc. We will also tackle some storytelling issues, play a few games, develop skills, and build community. We are friendly, informal, and fun! Workshop Dates: Sept. 28, Oct. 12, Oct. 19, and Nov. 2 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Please attend all 4 workshops.
