Eventbrite - Beyond Borders Storytelling Workshop

Storytelling is more than just entertainment, it is an effective technique to connect with people, establish credibility, inspire, motivate and convey complex ideas in a memorable way.

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 constructing a narrative, how to hook an audience, building suspense, techniques for adding color, humor, and pathos, and delivering a powerful ending.

Workshop participants also have the opportunity to tell a 5-10 minute personal, true story before a live audience at our next Story Jam on July 14 around the theme of 'Fish Out of Water'

Presented in Partnership with Hostelling International USA

Want to Share a Story?
If you have a true, personal 5-10 min story you'd like to tell about being in a place where you felt out of place like a fish out of water, we want to hear from you!, pitch us your idea here.
