Why Storytelling and Story Writing
Is there a story you have heard again and again and you still enjoy listening to it?
Have you ever wondered why we tell each other stories?
Stories helps us make meaning of the world around us. Stories helps us relive our past and leap into the future. Stories are a creative expression of our experiences and wisdom of past generations.
Story-telling is one of the most effective and creative ways of communication. It is identified as a very important skill needed for effective action. Generations of leaders, gurus, artists, entrepreneurs and individuals have used stories to share a message and continues to do so!
Stories we tell and stories we write are an extension of who we are and who will be!
At the end of the course children will write an original short story.
