Workshop: Finding a Family or Personal Story to Tell with Janet Dowling

Saturday 1 October 10am–12:30pm

We all have personal stories that we want to share, but want them to be more than an anecdote. This workshop, with Janet Dowling, shares some of the skills to develop a personal story into something you’ll enjoy telling and retelling!

Moving from the Surrey Hills , and leaving behind two successful storytelling clubs, Janet Dowling now brings Storytelling for Adults to  Sidmouth with the aid of her trusty Story Crew who support the events. SidMouth StoryNights for GrownUps brings the best of British Storytellers to delight storytellers and storylisteners alike. The First Tuesday Story Cafe is an afternoon session on , um , the First Tuesday of the month and anyone  can tell a story ( max 10 mins, no reading aloud allowed) or just listen to the variety of traditional and personal stories. Ad hoc workshops are offered which give a full range of skills for beginners and improvers, and a coaching and practice storytelling group is in development. An exciting time!
