FREE Storytelling Activities Pamphlet

At its heart this course will be about storytelling and the fact that every one of us is a natural storyteller. Through thought-provoking exercises and games, each of the six lessons will introduce various techniques used in the art of storytelling so that, without realising it, you will build up confidence and skill. By the end of the lessons you will have grown in your ability to express yourself and have some solid tools and exercises that you can use for storytelling and creative writing in the future. Contact Jenny Davis for the activities pamphlet on 07946 585978 or email jenny@artsuplift.co.uk
