    • Story & Writing Workshops & Residencies

      Description:

      Workshops and residencies tailored to grade level and curriculum study Native peoples, storytelling, and story writing in depth. Workshops examine stories and techniques of telling via demonstration and discussion. Residencies offer an in-depth exposure to types of stories (anecdotal, historical, familial, tutorial) and can be focused towards memory, oral storytelling skills, and folklore, or multiple literary skills. Students work on improvisation, development of characters, pacing and memory techniques, visualization, predicting outcomes, imagery, and descriptive language skills.
