“Your life story is a gift, and it should be treated as such.”

Emily Gordon, writer.

Personal stories can be poignant, funny, exciting, moving, and more. Through these stories both teller and listener recognise their shared humanity because well-told personal stories create connections and community.

Want to sharpen your personal storytelling abilities?

Join us and spend a lovely morning with Laura Packer. Using prompts, breakout sessions, and creative exercises, this workshop will help you discover, craft, and share meaningful personal stories.

With over 25 years of storytelling experience and a degree in folklore and mythology, she has told, taught, ranted, raved, consulted and considered storytelling around the world. When she isn’t telling, she teaches, gives keynotes, runs venues, coaches, writes, and helps people and organisations use their voices to make the world a better place. She has won many awards including induction into the National Storytelling Network’s Circle of Excellence; Minnesota Grand Slam Champion; Best in Fringe Kansas City (and others); and her books From Audience to Zeal: The ABCs of Finding, Crafting, and Telling a Great Story and the accompanying workbook were honoured by Storytelling World.
