Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all of our open classes will be delivered online until further notice. Please click the “Online” button below to view our current course offerings.
The Story Studio’s corporate workshops and other specialty classes are held throughout the world, either in-person or online! If you have a group of 3 or more students for whom you’d like us to arrange a special class, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
These online workshops will be conducted very much like our in-person workshops, with storytelling exercises and opportunities to share your stories and get feedback from your instructor and fellow students. We’ll be using the Zoom online platform to host our video calls, and we’ll send you all the info you need on how to join your class when you sign up.
In this 2-day workshop, participants apply the principles of compelling storytelling to communicate more effectively on the job. Brief lectures and hands-on exercises focus on bringing an emotionally resonant arc to brand biographies, personal anecdotes for professional networking, and vision-into-action stories.
Participants will get a chance to share and receive feedback on one short story of their choosing. The instructor confers with each student via email prior to the day of the workshop to help the student prepare appropriate story content to workshop.
For any class of up to 2 days in length, students must commit to attending the entire class. We understand emergencies arise, but if you know ahead of time that you cannot attend any part of the class, we ask that you choose dates where you can attend the entire class. We understand that last minute conflicts may arise in your schedule. If this happens, please contact email@example.com as soon as you become aware of your conflict.
For online classes, please arrive on time and be prepared to attend the class with your camera on (not just audio).
Headphones are recommended to reduce echo/feedback and provide more privacy for your classmates.
We encourage you to make recordings (video or audio) when you share your story. You can do this using a separate smart device or by using Quicktime or Garageband on your computer. Please decide ahead of time what is easiest for you. If you are going to use a smart device, make sure that there is enough available memory on your phone or tablet to make a 5-minute recording. This is only a tool for you, and no one else will be viewing these videos. We do know that taping oneself makes some people uncomfortable, so please know that this is not mandatory.
This class is open to all students. No experience required.
