If you’ve ever thought of being a writer, you aren’t alone and it certainly isn’t too late. How to tell your own story is not an ability you have to be born with. Storytelling, like other art forms, is a process you can improve at with practice and direction. Indy Creative Aging knows that you have accumulated great stories over the years that others would be delighted to hear. And yet all of us can benefit from some advice on how to tell your own story.
Coming up next month in April, two ladies will be holding workshops to teach you just that. One is Carol Evans, a published author. The other, Barbara Boyd, is a seasoned journalist. Both are ready to help you learn to identify the milestones, experiences, and life lessons that come together to form your own fascinating stories. If you attend one of these workshops, you will leave with more knowledge on how to record and share your stories using various media (novel writing, journaling, video blogging, etc.)
The cost of learning how to tell your own story is merely $7, and the knowledge you’ll take away will be far more valuable than that to your family, friends, and loved ones. And even if you think you’ve never been a good storyteller and never will be, $7 isn’t much of a price to give it a try and see whether it helps. Here are the dates and locations available in April for the “How To Tell Your Own Story” workshop:
- Tuesday April 2: Broad Ripple, Class 250
- Tuesday April 9: Speedway, Class 650
- Wednesday April 17: Washington Park East, Class 450
