Storytelling Online Workshop Schedule

Storytelling Online Workshops

Each season, ISC hosts applied storytelling workshops on a variety of special topics as part of our traditional Teller-in-Residence series. Typically held in-person, we’ve modified them this year to allow for a live, interactive, virtual experience. These workshops are designed to explore the art and science of storytelling and how it can be used across multiple disciplines like healthcare, education, and business.

Workshop Price – $125
Saturday, December 5 and Saturday, December 12 at 11am – 1pm EST
Minton Sparks
Who We Are: A Two-Part Story-Writing Workshop

Each one of us has a story about who we are. Some are wildly inspiring; other times, they are the very things that hold us back. This workshop offers a unique opportunity to explore your family tree, listen deeply to your own story, and locate yourself within a particular time and place while learning new storytelling techniques. No writing experience necessary.

In addition to writing and performing, Minton teaches her “Create Your Story” workshop at universities and professional organizations across the country. Since 2014, she’s been an artist in residence at the Banff Performing Arts Center.

Regi Carpenter
Using Traditional Tales to Elicit Personal Stories and Coping Strategies

Stories from the world’s story traditions often mirror the issues of people who seek professional care: confusion, depression, addiction, grief, and a loss of identity. This workshop demonstrates how these tales also contain coping skills, resourcefulness and resiliency. Suitable for health care workers, caregivers, addiction counselors, bereavement counselors and volunteers in any of the helping fields.

Carpenter is the founder of Stories with Spirit, a creative initiative dedicated to bringing stories of hope to palliative care patients, families, and caregivers. She also trains medical professionals in the use of stories as narrative medicine.
