are encouraged to examine their own burning questions and coveted ideals,
wildest wishes and flights of fancy as raw material for a short script.

ACTION RACKET LAB Storytelling Workshop
Lois and Joanie share their storytelling expertise and encourage participants to share their observations and conclusions. They start with questions:
- What makes a good story?
- What is the difference between hearing a story and reading one?
- How do characters help to tell the story?
- How do suspense, conflict and humor make a good story even better?
Word games inspire participants to reveal the stories they've always wanted to tell.
The workshop is given in single and multi-session formats. Duration of each session: 90 minutes.
