Half Day Workshops

9AM- 12PM with Milbre Burch

Don’t Just Do Something: Stand There!

Incorporate both movement and stillness to propel your story. Milbre has techniques to help you engage your body in storytelling.


1- 3:30PM with Sherry Norfolk

Tailoring a Tale to Carry Your Message

Using storyspeak, rather than infospeak to enhance attention and retention. Working with storytelling tools useful for public speaker, park interpreters, teachers, and anyone who wants to get a message across, Sherry helps you identify relevant stories and share them in ways that relate to something within the experience of each listener.



Full Day Workshop:

9AM- 3:30PM with Donald Davis

Bring your own story and this masterful teller of personal and family stories, Donald Davis, will help you polish it. Limited to ten participants.



Lunch: We will again be offering boxed lunches.
