In-Person Workshop Intensive: Taking Your Story to the Stage, 3-day storytelling intensive @ Asheville, NC
Dec 2 – Dec 4 all-day

The focus of this “Taking Your Story to the Stage” 3-day workshop is on storytelling performance. Each participant is asked to come with a story that is almost “stage-ready.” Set in Connie’s home tucked in the beautiful mountains surrounding Asheville, NC, this workshop provides a supportive, affirming atmosphere to nurture storytellers’ performance skills and confidence. “Taking Your Story to the Stage” is open only to those who have previously studied with Connie. If you have not had this opportunity and/or Connie has not heard you tell a story, a private coaching session may be required. If you’d like to add your name to the list of participants now contact Connie. For more details check out the Spring Taking page here.

Even if you are not available for the workshop, please join nationally celebrated storyteller, Connie Regan-Blake, as she hosts her workshop tellers in an enchanting evening of storytelling in “A Slice of Life: An Evening of Stories” on December 3, 2022 at Black Mountain Center for the Arts.
