New Format for the Introduction to Storytelling Workshop

Filed under: Storytelling Workshops,Uncategorized — Sheila @ 7:36 pm

The Introduction to Storytelling Workshop, which I  have been running in one form another for 20 years, is going back home to the Singapore Book Council. In 1999 Kiran Shah and I ran the first Introduction to Storytelling course on behalf of the Book Council.  At that time it was a 33-hour course, but later it was shortened to a 9-hour  and then a 10-hour course.  Now it is being expanded again under the Singapore Book Council into a  comprehensive 14-hour course, of two 7-hour modules.   You can choose to take just the first day or sign up for both as a package.

The Book Council are applying for SkillsFuture funding for it. So watch this space for the funding details when they come through. Please see the links below for details of each module and to register.

Here is what some of the past participants have said about previous workshops…

“A fantastic workshop. Every second is worth a million! Thanks a lot for waking up the storyteller in me.”    

“Sheila came across as very sincere and passionate about sharing her expertise in storytelling. She not only taught us how to tell stories, but inspired us as well. The workshop was also well paced with a very relevant and well planned programme.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop! Really benefited from the session and am looking forward to using what I learnt back in school with my students. Thank you so much!”

“Sheila showed that she has deep knowledge in storytelling and she was able to give useful/practical/easy to understand  examples too.  What I liked most was that she shared with us lots of ideas, so we can choose the best which is applicable to us. My time and money were well spent.”

“Sheila is very approachable and engaging. The workshop is rather empowering too; I always thought I can’t tell stories, but now I believe I can.”   

“Would recommend it to others. A solid introduction. Inspiring.”     

“Well organised and paced. Fantastic attention to detail.”

“Sheila is an outstanding and humorous Storytelling Expert. It’s my honour to be able to learn from her. Simply Great!”
