Spotlight On You is an approximately 4 hour workshop which includes lessons about storytelling structure, character development and other techniques for creating dramatic, engaging and true, personal stories. Class size is limited so all students will be given the opportunity to share a story and receive critical feedback.
Class sizes are limited to no more than 8 registrants so that each attendee will have time to share a story and receive critical feedback. Because the workshops will be over Zoom, participants can also record their own stories and feedback and save the recording for future reference.
