Everyone has a story. In this workshop participants will have the opportunity to work on developing a compelling story from start to finish. The first class will focus on what makes a good story and how to find the stories in your own life. The second class students will have the opportunity to workshop their story, interact with their peers and give feedback. The final session will be a storytelling showcase for the Melrose community. The final class will be a performance for family and friends on 11/14.
