Learn how to develop and craft stories and build language skills through creative writing, theater, and movement activities. As a professional actress, storyteller, motivational speaker and author, I travel to many cities, states, villages and countries to teach, perform, motivate, collect and share stories. During the past 20 years I have worked with numerous schools and community organizations to help students create and develop their own stories, plays and other creative works of art that are important to them. I look forward to our creative endeavors.
In Storytelling Residencies, students hear stories while learning how to develop and craft their own life stories. Creative Writing Residencies provide opportunities for students to write about things that are important to them. Movement, visual arts, folktales, stories and theater games are used to help expand students’ visions. Theater Residencies help students learn more about themselves as they build their communication skills. Theater games and activities help students to explore who they are, and build self-esteem—the creative possibilities are endless.
