Storytelling Workshops
Discover your personal story and learn how to craft your narrative using our unique creative method. Led by Portland Story Theater Founders, Lawrence Howard and Lynne Duddy, you will receive over 30 hours of coaching. Each workshop culminates in a show at the Alberta Abbey, where you’ll tell your story before a live audience. Every story is recorded and posted online. But it's the experience of opening your heart voice that is transformative. The April Art of Personal Narrative workshop is full but there's still room in our May and June workshops. Click here to check the dates
