Speaking Your Truth

First Steps into the Art of Storytelling With Matthew Dicks

Internationally bestselling novelist and 46-time Moth StorySLAM and GrandSLAM champion Matthew Dicks teaches the art of personal storytelling in a low stakes, information packed, highly entertaining workshop designed to meet the needs of people with little or no any previous storytelling experience. While many workshop graduates go on to tell stories onstage, most have no desire to ever perform. People enroll in Matthew’s workshops to learn about storytelling for personal and professional development, to improve their communication and writing skills, to challenge themselves, and to finally get the attention of colleagues and grandchildren.

Included in this workshop:

  •  Methods for generating story ideas from your life experiences
  • Techniques for crafting an engaging, entertaining, and moving story
  • Development of humor, suspense, and surprise in storytelling
