Better Stories by Design: Crafting Narratives that Stick

  • Alpena County Fletcher Public Library (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

October 2, 2018

Storytelling is an art, for sure - but like any other artistic endeavor, it takes a process and good work to begin developing stories. The goal is to create common landmarks around an issue or idea that help to influence behavior. The focus of our discussion will be as much about preparing the storyteller(s) as it will be about developing the components of the narrative. Attendees will have time to craft and share their own stories for critique.

This event is presented by Huron Pines and will be hosted at the Alpena County George N. Fletcher Public Library.

Cost is $20 to attend and pre-registration is required.
