As we try to stay connected with each other despite our pledge to stay physically separate, we at Hudson Valley Story Workshops will be offering our storytelling workshop online. We believe that this is a wonderful opportunity to support each other during this challenging time.

Stories build community and help us make sense of ourselves and the world we live in. We need that now more than ever. In crafting and telling stories of our lived experience, we learn to explore the life experiences that have shaped and defined us as individuals, and telling our stories also connects us to others and reveals our shared humanity.

In this workshop you will:

  • Be introduced to principles and strategies of live storytelling
  • Learn to turn your life experiences into a compelling story
  • Receive individual feedback and support on your story
  • Work with other storytellers to practice and improve your story
  • Perform a final 5-minute story

Is this for you?

Have you ever attended a story slam or listened to the Moth Radio Hour? Do you have a story you’d like to perform or just work on? Do you miss coming to On The Fly Story Slam at HiLo Catskill and want to stay connected to other storytellers until we are able to gather in public places again? Have you always wanted to explore storytelling, but never had the time? We’d love to have you!

Special notes

We will use Zoom to host the workshops and will send you a link along with instructions on how to set up Zoom.
