The Art and Architecture of Storytelling
Want to learn the art of storytelling?
Give us 6 sessions (all on zoom, so no driving!) and we’ll coax your story from the kernel of an idea into a full-fledged ready-to-hit-the-stage polished gem. Along the way, you’ll learn, laugh and love every minute within our tight-knit community of only 10 students.
Your Strong Words workshop gave me just the right tools, inspiration and encouragement I needed to write a compelling story and deliver it with conviction. Thank you, Larry and Marlene!
You are masters at refining a story to it’s essence, discarding whatever does not advance its theme, and giving detailed notes on acting and delivery. Appreciate your fine eye for nuance and detail making my story zing.
A safe, supportive and, most of all, fun journey into the world of storytelling with the experts: Larry and Marlene!
Larry and Marlene held the lantern while I dug and helped me find and polish a gem of a story that I needed to write.
I'm addicted to Strong Words. I can't get enough of Larry and Marlene's wisdom and energy!
The class and this project is truly enjoyable and motivating.
As an attorney and communications professional, my livelihood depends upon storytelling. This class allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and into a personal storytelling space, while learning more about engaging audiences with tight, beat-driven stories.
These past couple of weeks have allowed me to see the storyteller I AM and the storytellers you all ARE too.
The Strong Words instructors know their $#¡+. Better still, they are insightful and compassionate in helping the storyteller learn the craft and improve his/her story. I cannot recommend their course highly enough!
I highly recommend the Strong Words Intro Class. They helped me find the ideas that were laying dormant inside of my soul and helped me to organize those thoughts, feelings and events into a story. Larry and Marlene helped me to develop the story in a way that stayed true to my initial vision.
The later part of the workshop helped us not only with the performance aspect but how to make the story flow from a written to a spoken piece of art.
I took what they taught and revisited other pieces that I had written. Using their lessons on editing, action and flow helped me to bring those pieces to a story of which I am proud.
Everyone in the class was so supportive. It felt like more than a class. I encourage everyone to take this workshop. Whether you are looking to write a million stories or if you just want your voice to be heard, don’t pass up this chance!
