Inspired by Jennifer Munro’s presentation of the same name at the National Storytelling Summit, we will mine personal stories. The focus will be on “transforming anecdotes into stories with a satisfying narrative arc that conveys in some vital way what it means to be human.” With weekly assignments, we will work with Munro’s 2016 Storytelling World Gold Winner, Aunty Lily and Other Delightfully Perverse Stories. In the Spring we featured Matthew Dicks’ book: Storyworthy, based on the formalistic 5-minute Moth story told in narrative voice. Munro’s style opens up to longer stories and includes more traditional components such as character dialogue and gestures. But both award winning tellers contend that every well told story centers around a moment when something significantly changes, coined by Dicks as the “5-second moment” when “your heart turns over.” With permission, using Munro’s powerful prompts we will uncover those 5-second moments and how they inform each story’s beginning and ending. See: www.jennifermunro.net. Open to all levels. Maximum enrollment: 12 students.
