Storytelling For Everyone: Courses in Personal Narrative

The Chicago literary series This Much is True and Story Lab Chicago bring a unique lineup of performers to their monthly events. The creative forces behind these series are presenting writing classes that aim to develop storytellers. Their initiative Storytelling For Everyone: A Four Session Course in Personal Narrative will be a set of four 3-hour sessions that cover the process of developing a story to readying it for live performance. Sessions are structured with a workshop component where writers will receive feedback on their work.

The class instructor is Scott Whitehair, producer of This Much Is True and creator/host of Story Lab Chicago. Each class size will be capped at 6 giving those enrolled more one-on-one time with fellow classmates and the instructor.

This program will be held in the Cornelia Arts Building (1800 W Cornelia) on Saturdays from January 28 through February 18 from 10am to 1pm.

The workshop registration Fee is $125. Check out how to sign up at the Story Lab website or check their registration website.
