Storytelling: The Reading & Writing Connection

Susansylvia Scott (Master Teaching Artist) (Lighton Prize) [ view artist bio ]


Active learning is the trademark of this workshop. Creative exercises nurture the skills of imagining, listening, and active participation.  Students enhance their ability to prepare and tell a story.  This workshop is an exciting adventure into creative imaging. 


Susansylvia has two other workshops that emphasize story writing: Oral Tradition: Your Family's Story and What's Your Story? All Writing Is Creative.


Residency option also available. Please inquire.
