Building off of his two decades of research into story, personal work, and writing process, StoryCenter's founder and Executive Director Joe Lambert has developed an unique online writing workshop for anyone interested in exploring voice, concept, and genre in creative writing. Joe’s 2014 book, Seven Stages: Story and the Human Experience, serves as the framework for the course, which develops participants’ narrative and writing skills while exploring the stories each person brings.
This webinar includes:
- Exploration of story through seven ways of knowing: nature, the body, growing up, language and learning, awareness and insight, creativity, and the narrative archetype
- Writing prompts and exercises to strengthen narrative skills in a supportive environment
- Curriculum and readings based on Joe Lambert’s 2014 book, Seven Stages: Story and the Human Experience
- Discussion of applications of Storywork to specific professional fields, including the arts, social work, education, and organizational leadership.
Who should attend:
While this webinar program is aimed at professionals working with storytelling in media arts, arts education, and community arts, as well as expressive arts and other therapeutic approaches to art-making, anyone can gain from the experience. Participants from the helping professions of counseling, therapy, peer support, diversity awareness, and organizational development and coaching will have much to gain – and much to add – to each session.
You will need a computer with the audiovisual capability for online video chat on the GoToMeeting platform. GoToMeeting works on Macs and PCs.
