Take Our Summer Storytelling Intensive

Curious about exploring the art of storytelling? Looking to hone your storytelling skills? The Summer Intensive with master storyteller Marylyn Peringer is the perfect opportunity to connect with your voice, connect with your story and connect with your audience.

There are many opportunities for telling and for listening in this four-day course, open to both beginner and veteran storytellers. Some time will be devoted to personal stories, but the course focuses on the folktale as the model for all kinds of storytelling. Each participant will choose a story from material supplied by the instructor and then learn (not memorize) it through a series of enjoyable, non-stressful activities, often with partners, designed to deepen the teller’s connection with the story. On the last day of the course, all participants tell their stories to the group and receive helpful feedback from the group and the instructor.

As part of the course, registrants visit the special folk and fairy tale collections at the Lillian H. Smith branch of the Toronto Public Library, and attend the 1,001 Friday Nights of Storytelling (weekly open mic storytelling event) to meet other members of the Toronto storytelling community.
