This Fall I'm getting together with two accomplished and talented artists, Wendy Overly and Clare Murphy, to hold a storytelling workshop at what I'm calling the Jacob Street School (the barn at my house).

We are looking for for people whose work centers on the spoken story, whether it be ancient myth or the latest events in the world. We are especially interested in people with a deep experience of story - actors, playwrights, performers, speakers and educators - who are willing to take a good and hard look at what they are doing and how they can do it better.

I view storytelling as a seed art - one that is the basis for many other kinds of expression. To be a master of this art requires a big skill set - good memory, emotional intelligence, an understanding of narrative structure, a facility with language, and skill in the use of the voice and body. It also requires dedication and practice.

If you are at all interested, I'd love to hear from you. Email jacobstschool@gmail.com or go ahead and fill out the online application.

For more information about the workshop, visit jacobstschool.weebly.com.

If you have questions that aren't answered on the website, feel free to email them to jacobstschool@gmail.com. I or Michele will get back to you with answers.

The workshop dates are Friday September 20 to Sunday September 22 at 301 Jacob St, Seekonk, MA.
