The Craft of Storytelling

Since the beginning of time, storytellers have captured our minds in suspense, passed down oral history and tradition and provided rich emotions and entertainment. Study the key pieces of storytelling as you build a tale, layer by layer, through character development, flow and cadence, scene and plot.

Forget today's fast lane and take time to listen and rediscover the art of oratory and capture your audience's attention. This is a perfect course for teachers, parents, grandparents, caregivers, and broadcast professionals. View the course outline for additional details.


Stories create pathways, open minds and inspire action. Stories make change possible.
