Story workshops

What’s your story?

For over a decade I’ve been engaging audiences as a playwright and helping other writers do the same. Now I’m offering workshops to help develop those storytelling skills for individuals and business professionals eager to focus their mission, captivate their audience and build strong relationships.

For Individuals

Ever have trouble explaining what exactly you do or why someone should care? A strong, clear story is invaluable when you are promoting yourself or trying to attract business. It doesn’t just tell potential employers/clients what you do, it tells them why they should care. We’ll work together to create a strong, focused story that can be easily adapted to websites, ad copy, cover letters and networking conversations. This is a story you’ll know by heart because it comes from the heart.

For Organizations/businesses

Teams with strong story skills show higher levels of innovation and build stronger relationships both with clients as well as their own teammates (leading to higher work satisfaction).

My Background

For over 15 years I’ve been telling stories that engage audiences as a playwright and inspiring newer writers as a workshop leader. As a playwright, my work has been published and produced at theaters across the country, and twice been named a “Critics Pick” by the New York Times. As an instructor I’ve led workshops in both theater and business storytelling at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis and the McCarter Theater in Princeton, NJ and have taught story classes at UC San Diego, UT Austin, Texas State University and The University of Minnesota. In that time I’ve learned what makes a good story work and how to build empathy with audiences of all kinds.
