Explore the Landscapes of Story & Telling in 5 Virtual Sessions
A New Online Storytelling Offering
Connie is excited to offer a new learning opportunity to warm-up your storytelling voice and creativity! Join her via Zoom for five story-work sessions with a weekly format that allows for skills to grow over time while encouraging a consistency in discovering, revisiting and refining your stories. A few participants will have the opportunity to tell to the whole group and be coached by Connie.
Very encouraging—I can do this!
This was an excellent training session. I can’t wait to utilize my new ‘knowledge’ thank you.
If you want to become comfortable with yourself telling stories to others, this is the way. Connie is very good at teaching. I am shocked at how far I came!
During these weekly sessions participants are invited to:
- Draw on memories & traditional stories in developing and growing your stories
- Work with partners and in small groups to illuminate new viewpoints
- Expand practice of deep listening and appreciative feedback
- Increase confidence in giving voice to your stories
- Cultivate your skills and delight in telling stories
All are welcome: Connie’s current and former students as well as newcomers.
Please join us on Zoom as we create an encouraging, playful and appreciative community in celebration of stories and creativity.

As a teacher, Connie Regan-Blake creates a fun, welcoming environment while guiding her students to new heights of creativity, exploration and learning. Her teachings can be useful in your professional life in the business world, with family and friends around the supper table or in a virtual performance setting.

I am so excited to welcome Connie Regan-Blake’s storytelling students. Connie holds a very special place in my heart, and so does storytelling. In the words of our beloved Appalachian storyteller Ray Hicks, and Connie’s license plate: Tell On!
