SHEROES STORYTELLING WORKSHOP WITH STEVIE TAKEN
In preparation for "Sheroes," an Inlandia Institute event of live storytelling at the Riverside Public Library for Women's History Month, we are seeking storytellers to sign up for a series of two FREE storytelling workshops. Storytellers will present true stories from their own lives inspired by women who have had an influence on them.
Have a story in mind, or maybe two? Think about telling your story in the style you would tell a friend. At the workshops we will take turns telling our stories and offering feedback. The feedback is intended to help develop the presentation of our stories for the benefit of an audience. Stories must be true (there is room for artistic interpretation), happened to you, told in the first person, and under ten minutes in length.
Space is available, but limited. The workshops will be held Saturday, 1/25 @ 1pm and Saturday, 2/29 @ 1pm. Both workshops will be held in Riverside (address given upon confirmation). Participation in the workshops do not obligate you to share your story at the "Sheroes" event on March 5th, nor guarantee that your story will be selected to be included in the program.
Below are a set of guidelines for live storytelling which we have borrowed from The Moth, (https://themoth.org/share-your-story/storytelling-tips-tricks), a live storytelling podcast which is highly recommended; they present stories in the style we are aiming to achieve. Plus, it's a great companion for a walk around the neighborhood, a long drive, cleaning your house, or not cleaning your house.
If you have any questions, or would like to reserve your spot for the workshop, contact Stevie Taken at email@example.com, or call (562)704-9949.
