Speak Up at CHS: Advanced Storytelling Workshop with Matthew Dicks

June 15, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm |

** Rescheduled from May 18 **

Speak Up co-founder and 38-time Moth StorySLAM winner and 6-time GrandSLAM champion Matthew Dicks will be teaching a day-long workshop for those ready to move beyond the beginning workshop and tell their own stories.

Unlike our beginner’s class, the advanced version of the workshop is a more interactive, performance-based model. Participants will be encouraged to tell a story of their own in a low stakes, highly supportive environment – though they need not come to the workshop with a story prepared. Much of the instruction is driven through the stories told by participants, so there is ample opportunity for actual storytelling. There is also a focus on performance techniques, improvisational games, and the explicit modeling of the crafting of a new story.

Registration is $110 for CHS members and $120 for non-members. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Tickets can be purchased here.

Lunch is not included, but there will be a lunch break. Bring your own or ask CHS staff about local eateries.
