Course DescriptionIn this one-day workshop, we find the stories that only you can tell. Through prompts and playful writing exercises, you learn how to generate unique and gripping story ideas, find your first line, and learn simple techniques for structuring a personal story for performance. By the end of the workshop, you have the beginnings of an unforgettable, personal story that you can tell in one of the city’s many storytelling shows, like The Moth Story Slam, and many other ideas in your back pocket to continue to develop into full pieces.
Course may be taken to satisfy core (Beginning) units in the Creative Nonfiction Certificate Program, or as an elective in either fiction/creative nonfiction certificate.
