What will be covered in this workshop?

This is a generative workshop. I’ll be demonstrating ways to find unique prompts that work for both fiction and CNF pieces that result in surprising new angles. There will be time during the workshop to write using the prompts, and people who want to share the results will have the opportunity to do so.

Who is teaching this workshop?

My name is Sage Tyrtle. I’m a professional storyteller, and I’ve been teaching workshops for the past ten years, helping my students tell resonant, strong, effective stories. My stories have been featured on NPR, CBC, and PBS. I’m a Moth StorySLAM winner. You can read my written work in Pithead Chapel, Mslexia, and Replay, among others.

When does this workshop happen?

July 10, 2021 at 10 AM EST / 3 PM BST.

How long is the workshop?

This workshop runs two hours.

How is the workshop presented?

This workshop is online, live, and very interactive. Participants are strongly encouraged to keep their video cameras on, as online events are much more fun when we can all see each other.

We’ll gather on Google Meet, which is very similar to Zoom and has built-in closed captioning. I will send you the link for the workshop on July 9.

What do your students say?

“Sage gives you the tools and encouragement, then steps away and lets people discover and learn. Everyone in the class was lovely, and Sage did a great job making sure everyone felt comfortable and fun.” – Erin Kang, Founder of Stories of Ours

“Thank you for giving us a night to remember. You are a true professional, gifted and talented. Thank you for inspiring us, making us think differently and pushing us to be better communicators.” – Wendy Kauffman, Brown & Cohen Communications

How much does the workshop cost?

This workshop costs $50 CAD (30 GBP).
