Speak Up at CHS: Beginner Storytelling Workshop with Speak Up co-founder Matthew Dicks

  • Dates: 17 – 17 Feb, 2018
Saturday, February 17
Connecticut Historical Society
One Elizabeth Street, Hartford
9:30-4:30pm


Speak Up co-founder and 27-time Moth StorySLAM winner and four time GrandSLAM champion Matthew Dicks will be teaching a day-long workshop on the art of storytelling. This is a workshop designed for people with little or no any previous storytelling experience and seeks to meet the goals of a wide range of participants. While many workshop graduates have gone on to tell stories on stage for Speak Up, The Moth, and other storytelling organizations, most students take this beginner-level workshop with little or no desire to ever take the stage. People want to learn about storytelling for personal and professional development, to meet new people, to improve communication skills, to develop their writing ability, to challenge themselves, to finally get the attention of grandchildren and colleagues, and to try something new.
