IAP Workshop: Storytelling 101

February 1, 2018, 10-11:30 a.m.

Part of the MIT Can Talk series, open to the MIT-community.

Storytelling is a chance to reflect on your life, take stock of the events you've lived through, and think about how they have shaped you as a person. Taught by Kirsty Bennett, a former director and producer for The Moth, this class will encourage you to identify what stories you might want to tell, introduce basic narrative storytelling structure and help you begin to craft your own story.


Take part in a series of six independent IAP workshop sessions on public speaking during the last week of IAP. The sessions are meant to be practical and interactive, and are open to all members of the MIT community. Each session is limited to 30 participants. Pre-registration is encouraged but drop-ins are welcome if space is available.

* Participants of this session are encouraged to take part in the “MIT Can Talk” oratory competition on Friday, February 2 and Saturday, February 3 at the MIT Museum (see IAP listing for more details).
