Spoken word storytelling is a powerful tool to connect to your audience, talk about your work and ideas, stand out in a job interview, and make an impact in a meeting. This workshop, led by Kirsty Bennett, introduces the basic concepts of narrative storytelling, a simple structure to map your ideas, and how to add context and meaning to the stories you tell. You’ll also test out your new skills with your peers.
Thursday, November 8th 12-1:30pm in Room 4-146
Lunch will be served. Spots are limited!
