Eventbrite - Beyond Borders Storytelling Workshop

You don’t need to have walked on the moon or traveled the world to have a great story. Everyone has at least a few great stories, but many of us dread the thought of standing on stage to share our experiences.

We will show you how to tell engaging stories that draw on your personal life experiences. We will cover storytelling basics and not-so-basics including how to hook an audience, building suspense, techniques for adding color, humor, and pathos, and delivering a powerful ending.

Presented in partnership with the fantastic, fun folks at Hostelling International USA. Check them out at:
