Storytellers: Session Two (NBPL Teens) Class 1/3

Learn to tell your story. This 3-part workshop series will provide guidance in developing stories in a first person narrative. We live in an age where your voice matters more than ever, by learning how to effectively craft thoughts and ideas, teens can develop their storytelling skills and even learn to cultivate their voice on social media.  

Dates for this session are: May 12, 19, 26.  Registration is for all 3 sessions. Teens are encouraged to attend all three sessions to receive the most benefit.  One lucky participant will be selected from the session to receive a Barnes & Noble Gift card.  Courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
