Northport Village Storytelling Workshop

Northport Village Storytelling Workshop!

Come learn the fine art of storytelling! There’s no obligation to get involved in a Story Slam, though you may help shape one! It’s a great opportunity to connect with neighbors, explore a deeply meaningful craft, and check out the beautiful new Trinity Community Art Center!

When: Saturday, July 20, 10am-1pm
Where: Trinity Community Art Center, 130 Main St, Northport
Facilitators: Annie Mark & Liz Alexander
To Register: Email northportvillagestorytelling@gmail.com to let them know you’re coming. The cost is $20, which you may pay by Venmo @nptstorytelling. Light refreshments will be included.
 
Said Northport Story Slam Founder Liz Alexander: “The intention of the workshop is to continue creating community around our personal stories which have the power to connect us. If you are eager to ultimately tell a story before a live audience- we encourage you to participate!  If you’re simply curious- we encourage you to bring that curiosity and participate! There is no expectation for you to tell a story at an event. We do anticipate that through the workshop our next event will take shape- such as the theme, date and possibly some of the storytellers
 
We are thankful to our neighbors at Trinity Community Art center for welcoming us to use their space for the workshop and to Trinity Episcopal Church for welcoming us to use their building space for the next live storytelling event. ❤
