Storytelling Workshop


St. John’s is hosting two very special Faith Forums at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, February 11 and Sunday, February 18. Matthew and Elysha Dicks, founders of Speak Up Hartford, will give a two-part storytelling workshop for adults and teens (our middle and high school groups). Speak Up Hartford sponsors storytelling events in the area that regularly sell out. They also run storytelling workshops that cost as much as $95 per person…but come to our workshops and you won’t pay a dime! Matthew is a bestselling author and a 32-time Moth Story Slam champion; he and Elysha are both teachers in West Hartford. They are sure to be wise, funny and captivating, and you’ll learn tips and techniques for telling a great story—a useful skill for everything from dinner parties to college application essays. Don’t miss this one!
