Ira Glass of This American Life says, “Great stories happen to people who know how to tell them.” Do you want to get better at captivating listeners? Whether you want to tell your story on stage, in a business meeting or college interview, or at the family table, professional storyteller Terry Wolfisch Cole of Tell Me Another will teach you everything you need to know to engage any audience at this hands-on, in-person workshop. The session will include an opportunity to hear Terry tell a story, guidance on choosing a story to share, instruction on how to tell your effectively, and an opportunity to write and practice with feedback.
