The desire to tell stories is innately human, but even though we all tell stories, there are tricks and techniques that can help us do it better, and give us a deeper appreciation for the art of storytelling in books and movies.

During this workshop, participants are introduced to the Three Act storytelling formula, engaging in interactive exercises to help them generate ideas, write characters, and create interesting plots and narratives.

Using concrete examples and working in groups, at the end of the workshop all participants will have found their own voices and be able to write and develop their stories that they would present into the form of a pop-up book.
