STORYTELLING WORKSHOPS 2020
In our Homework for Life segment, we talk about strategies that storytellers can use to cause an audience to experience emotions similar to the emotions the storyteller experienced within the story.
Next we listen to a story by John Devan Sandiford.
Amongst the many things we discuss include:
Excellent opening sentences.
Delivery as a key element to humor
Identifying race without identifying skin color
Allowing scenes to unfold for the audience like they unfolded for the storyteller
Next we answer questions from listeners about visions in storytelling and the use of thesis statements when preparing to craft a story.
Lastly, we each offer a recommendation.
