Storytellers and listeners, Cliffhangers are having their first storytelling workshop.

This workshop will introduce you to storytelling tools and techniques while working on performance skills, public speaking and creative writing. We will mix impromptu storytelling with more rehearsed ones so that we become comfortable turning events and anecdotes into full-fledged narratives that are suitable for the stage.
