Storytelling Workshop

Perhaps you’d like to compete in a local Story Slam or just weave personal tales into your business presentations. This two-night class will give you the tools to draft your story and an opportunity to tell your story in front of a small audience.

The first Session will consist of classroom instruction and interaction. Topics include: What Makes a Good Story, Basic Story Structure, and Creative Language. In the second session, participants will have the opportunity to present their own five-minute story and receive constructive feedback from their peers.

If you have questions about the class, please email Jim at or check out the Spring Chester County Night School catalogue.


West Chester Story Slam offers private tutoring on storytelling. Maybe you want to weave a story into your business presentation or would like guidance in preparing a story for a Story Slam or a Wedding Toast or another big event. Prices are reasonable, just email Jim at for details.
