Difficult Story Workshop with Loren Niemi

In response to the question, "when will you offer the next Difficult Story Workshop?" Elizabeth Ellis and Loren Niemi are happy to offer a three-session online version of their critically acclaimed (some would say, "life changing") approach to crafting truthful and artful stories that are often difficult to hear and harder to tell.

 

Three 90-minute sessions at 8 pm EDT: Thursday, July 8th; Monday, July 12th; Thursday, July 15th. This workshop will be limited to 10 participants and priced at $200 for the workshop - no individual session tickets are available. Each session will be on Zoom and the links for each session will be sent to you after registration.

A Master Class with Elizabeth Ellis


"Personal Stories"

 

 

A memorable personal story is the result of a million times a million tiny choices. This workshop will focus on:

Context : What do they need to know to understand the story?

Conflict : How do I keep the audience involved in the tale?

Characterization : Why should they care about what happens in the story?

And other narrative skills for crafting stories that really POP!

No previous experience with personal story is necessary.
