It’s All Relative – Finding Stories in Your Family History 

Story Facilitator: Marilyn McPhie

Sliding Scale Tuition: $5 minimum, $25 suggested donation, on up to $50

Who is lurking in your family tree – witches, pirates, pioneers, royalty? Do you tell – or even know – their stories? This workshop will offer ideas for you to explore your genealogy stories and turn them into tellable tales, weave them into traditional tales, and/or share them in introductions and segues. Some research, some family lore, some imagination and it’s all good, relatively speaking.

Grant Writing for Storytellers 

Story Facilitator: Rachel Hedman

Sliding Scale Tuition: $5 minimum, $25 suggested donation, on up to $50

Grants make dreams possible. Some people take the chance to write grants, but many stay far way from this opportunity. Discover how storytelling can be funded with already-out-there grants. Learn the basics from what to expect, how to tackle the “hard stuff,” and what to do to improve overall success. No guarantee that you will receive grants after this workshop, but you will gain tips and habits that can be applied to all your projects as a storyteller.

By the way, 100% of registrations/donations for this workshop will assist Story Crossroads in a project to have “Storytelling Basics in 8 Hours” as a self-led, online course completely in Spanish – performances/instructions/captioning. Thank you for supporting our own dream as we combine grants and donations to make it happen.
