Everyone loves a good story. Whether you are teaching a lesson, leading a meeting or presentation or going on a date, storytelling is an incredible approach to engaging communication. A dramatic hook, a funny anecdote or a solid button – all can encourage looking, increase understanding and snag the audience.

This workshop teaches the basics of good storytelling. We’ll work on how you can incorporate stories in an effective way. Through interactive activities, students will learn tips and tricks to make a story work, and have a chance to workshop the beginnings of story with personalized feedback.

Question from Anonymous
Is this class a little more advanced than storytelling for professionals? Based on the reviews, I am looking for a class that is more about concrete application and gaining feedback

The Storytelling Fundamentals with Charley Simpson was wonderful. I enjoyed the way she engaged all of us and encouraged our own individualistic styles. I would definitely continue studying with her!

This class was great. The instructor was warm and supportive and her presentation was professional and quite helpful. I had taken another storytelling class which was also quite good but that did not result in my becoming more confident in my extemporaneous storytelling skills. Storytelling Fundamentals accomplished this -- and more!
