DESCRIPTION

I'm trying something new! Normally I teach narrative by starting with structure but some people don't learn that way. So instead we're going to learn narrative by following people's instincts on story. We'll learn what works and what doesn't work by collectively building stories.

We're going to go slow and improvise a series of plays, as many as we can fit into the time. Each step along the way we'll talk about what we know and where we want the story to go. Let's tell stories and make everything up as we go!

BULLET POINTS:

  • Follow your story instincts
  • Learn lessons as we discover what comes next
  • Improvise from start to finish without worrying about a structure
