How to Create a Story
From ideas to the page to the stage, the Story Story Studio breaks down the elements of electric live storytelling, so anyone can dig into powerful scenes from real experience, then boldly step into the spotlight, and tell it like it is. You will learn how to dig up the extraordinary moments from your life, and develop the concepts and connection that make stories ring with truth, power, insight, and humor.
