Speak Up co-founder and Moth StorySLAM and GrandSLAM champion Matthew Dicks will be teaching a day-long workshop for those ready to move beyond the beginning workshop and tell their own stories.
Unlike our beginner’s class, which allows participants to be passive learners if they so choose, the advanced version of the workshop is a more interactive, performance-based model. Participants will be encouraged to tell a story of their own in a low stakes, highly supportive environment – though they need not come to the workshop with a story prepared. Much of the instruction is driven through the stories told by participants, so there is ample opportunity for actual storytelling. There is also a focus on performance techniques, microphone work, improvisational games, and the explicit modeling of the crafting of a new story.
Registration is $85 for CHS members and $95 for non-members (lunch is not included, but there will be a lunch break).
