Learn the art of personal storytelling in a workshop designed for people with little or no previous storytelling experience, with internationally bestselling novelist and record 8-time Moth GrandSLAM champion Matthew Dicks.

Explore storytelling for personal and professional development, to improve your communication and writing skills, to challenge yourself, or to get the attention of colleagues, family, and friends. Maybe even take a stage someday and perform!

The three-day workshop will consider methods for generating story ideas from life experiences and strategies for crafting an entertaining, engaging story, the development of humor, suspense, and stakes in storytelling and games designed to help you speak on the spur of the moment, to apply the skills taught in class to everyday storytelling. You will be invited (but not required) to develop your own story to present to the class for critique and an evening performance in front of a live audience.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
