You have a wealth of incredible stories in you. Join host Marc Moss of Tell Us Something as he guides you on a journey of finding your own story. Marc will help you shape that story into one you can share at a live storytelling performance the evening of the workshop. We will learn about the sense of place in a story through observation of the natural surroundings of the State Parks, learn about story arc, and learn how to better speak in front of a crowd. The workshop is open to all ages and abilities.
Marc Moss was professionally trained as an English educator, certified in 1995 to teach English 7-12 in the state of Ohio. He went on to teach in the world’s best classroom, Yellowstone National Park, as a seasonal ranger-naturalist from 1999-2001, telling the stories of the geothermals there, the ecology of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and the Historical Fort Yellowstone. He fell in love with storytelling listening to Garrison Keillor on Prairie Home Companion on long drives with his dad as a kid. Upon Arriving in Missoula, he experienced formal personal storytelling for the first time at a live storytelling event at the PEAS Farm, and has been cultivating personal storytelling in Missoula in some fashion ever since.
