It’s not about how big the story is, it’s about what is at the heart of it. Storyteller, Essayist, MothGrandSlam winner, and Back Fence PDX featured teller, Jessica Lee Williamson, will help you find the big truths in even the smallest of moments. Through improvisation and writing exercises, you will learn how tell your story in a way that only you can tell it. By the end of this one day workshop you will have a fully outlined story, ideas for future stories, and an understanding of the structure needed to tell them.
Jessica Lee Williamson is a writer, performer, and storyteller who graduated from The Second City Conservatory in Los Angeles. She has performed in storytelling shows across the country including The Moth MainStage, Sit N Spin, and BackFence PDX. Her work has been featured on The Moth Radio Hour,UnFictional, and Strangers. You can see more of her work at jessicaleewilliamson.com. Register for the class here.
