Story District Info Session
Are you curious about Story District’s Storytelling class? Are you a former student looking to take the next step in your creative career after a 101 class? Story District Senior Teacher Meredith Maslich hosts this info session to learn more about Storytelling 101, Storytelling Bootcamp and Workspace.
About the Course
Storytelling 101 / Boot-Camp
Look at your past in a new way, find the funny in your life experiences, command an audience, overcome stage-fright, and make new friends in Story District’s 6-week 101 class or 1- day boot camp. This class helps students discover and perform stories based on their real life experience. The 101 class course culminates in a stage performance for family and friends.
Story District’s Workspace is an intermediate-level class for 101 and Boot Camp graduates and storytellers with some experience who are interested in continuing to hone their storytelling skills. This intimate small-group format is designed for people who have a particular storytelling-related goal in mind. The class is named "workspace" because it is meant to be just that -- a place to work, so there is no set curriculum. Instruction is personalized to suit each participant's unique stated goal.
