Stoop Storytelling Workshops

The motto of The Stoop Storytelling Series is "Everyone has a story. What's yours?" Our storytelling workshops are the practical embodiment of that motto.

At our workshops, participants dramatically improve their ability to focus on the meaningful experiences in their lives, shape those experiences into stories, and present them to an audience. Because storytelling is universally accessible, our workshops are suited to people of all ages, cultures, educational levels, and disciplines.

We offer two main types of workshops.

The Art and Craft of True, Personal Storytelling

These workshops are open to participants interested in telling their tales onstage, communicating more effectively at work or at home, or simply becoming the author of their own life stories. The basic workshop runs three to four hours, and involves lecture, discussion, and hands-on practice, with each storyteller telling his/her tale in a safe, supportive environment and getting feedback.

Storytelling Workshops for Organizations and Businesses

The Stoop offers workshops for organizations and businesses that are customized to achieve goals ranging from from improving participants’ communication skills, to strengthening the organization’s brand through storytelling, to team-building. The Stoop has recently presented workshops at T.Rowe Price, Open Society Institute-Baltimore, The Kennedy Krieger Institute, Maryland Institute College of Art, and many other nonprofit organizations.

The Stoop also offers story coaching on an individual basis.
