Storytelling Methods and Techniques (offered at the Hingham Public Library)  

Storytelling is an emerging vibrant art form, which is recognized by the National Endowment for the Humanities. We now recognize that stories are the building blocks of knowledge and the foundation of memories and learning. Stories connect us with our humanity and link the past, present, and future. Participants will learn the basic structure necessary for telling a story that will engage the audience. We will explore the fundamentals of storytelling: how to develop narrative, plot, content, dramatic appeal, context, setting, and characters. Class sessions will consist of story presentations, discussion, and critique. Stories will be 3–5 minutes in length without notes. Each class member will be expected to participate in storytelling.
