Youth Storytelling Workshop

Youth telling stories on stage

Each child participating will have the opportunity to explore, learn and develop a personal style of storytelling in a creative and supportive on-line environment. Story selection, methods of learning a story, receiving and offering helpful feedback, comfort level in front of an audience, and storytelling performance skills are all important components of the workshop. At the last session, storytellers will tell a story on-line to an audience of family and friends.

The workshop facilitators are members of Ottawa StoryTellers. 

Participants must be able to attend at least 7 of the 8 workshop sessions from September 27th to November 22nd.  Meeting time will be Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30.
