Story Speak- To take a memory or burning passion and turn it into a tale or a truth. Workshop will reflect oral traditions of southern Appalachia complete with characters, plot, conflict and resolution. We’ll spend a little time talking about similarities of writing lyrics and telling a spoken story as well as where the story teller stands in the story. Participants should come with an idea of a story they want to tell. We’ll develop it in the workshop.

Meet the Filmmaker with Joe Weed “The Waltz to Westpahlia”
