Class and Workshop Schedule

Have you ever sat in our audience and thought, “I could totally do that!”? Well, we think so, too. 2nd Story offers a schedule of classes and workshops designed to teach people our particular style of creating stories. Our classes cover all aspects of how we do what we do: story generation, writing, editing, performance technique – and all of the instruction is infused with our collaborative, ensemble-based method.

Whatever your reasons for taking a class with us, we’re here to help you grow your skills and have a great experience.

Removing financial barriers for people interested in our work is important to us. We are able to offer a substantial number of full and partial scholarships for our classes and workshops this season.  Contact us so we can figure out together what could work for you. Email nick@2ndstory.com.

 

NOITP July 30th Workshop

Continuing our collaboration with the Chicago Park District’s ‘Night Out in the Parks’, 2nd Story presents two workshops for any and all new to storytelling. Use these two-hour classes to begin connecting to your voice! No need to bring samples or anything you’ve written previously. We’ll use collaborative brain-storming, story-sharing, and performance techniques to move through the beginning steps of creating your own story. Come for one workshop, or both!
