Speak Up at CHS: Master Class

Saturday, March 7 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm |

We’re sorry, this event is SOLD OUT

Speak Up co-founder, bestselling novelist, and 45-time Moth StorySLAM winner and 6-time GrandSLAM champion Matthew Dicks will be teaching a day-long workshop for those storytellers with stories ready to tell and are looking to revise, rewrite, and/or fine-tune through performance and critique.

Getting ready to perform a story for The Moth? Preparing a presentation for the workplace? Hoping to craft a story for an upcoming keynote? Refine a story for your sales pitch? Or maybe just looking to tell the best story at your upcoming family gathering?

This workshop is for you.

This is an all-day workshop focused solely on the stories told in class. Participants should either bring two stories to share over the course of the day or a single story that they will tell in the morning, receive feedback, and re-tell in the afternoon.

Registration is $120 for CHS members and $140 for non-members. Click here to purchase tickets.
