Spring Storytelling Intensive @ Literary Arts – Portland, OR
May 28 – June 18, 2020
Thursdays, 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. (four online sessions)
Class meets remotely over Zoom
Instructor: Mindy Nettifee
Limited to 12 students
The world has changed, and is continuing to change, in ways both small and epic, painful and beautiful. One of our most potent tools for processing massive change (or just life itself) is storytelling. Practicing the art of telling our own stories can help us sequence events for meaning, understand ourselves more deeply, and articulate the ways the world has shaped us, while we take a stab at shaping the world right back.
In this four week spring intensive, you will be supported in mastering the art of live true personal storytelling for radio or stage, a la The Moth or Back Fence PDX. You will be given the tools of story construction, discover what makes the best stories so memorable, practice constructing and telling stories from your own personal life material, and receive expert feedback on your delivery.
SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE: Scholarships pay for the entire class tuition. All of our writing classes have at least one scholarship position available, made possible by a generous gift from Dennis Steinman. To apply, email Susan Moore, Director of Programs for Writers, at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, contact information. In addition, list three classes in order of preference, why you would like to request a scholarship, and if you have taken a Literary Arts class before. Please note that preference is not guaranteed. All scholarships are subject to availability. Scholarship availability is confirmed 1-2 weeks before the class begins. Please note: if you register for a class as a way to hold your spot and apply for a scholarship and are awarded one, the $35 processing fee for your tuition refund still applies.
