Listen to This: Storytelling as Art and Tradition

  • Trueblood Performing Arts Center Washington Island, WI (map)

Washington Island Literary Festival 2019

We all do it. Every day, in fact. We tell stories. Your partner asks, “How was your day?” and you tell the story of your coworker’s unsuccessful attempt to fix the copier or how your 5-year-old discovered she loves grasshoppers. It is part of how we make meaning of our days, our lives. Oral storytelling is one of the ways we pass knowledge from generation to generation. It is how we understand where we have come from and where we believe we are going.

In this Creative Lab, we will explore how to tell a great story.
