Writing Workshop
Rob will be hosting a free 6-week writing workshop throughout the residency entitled From Oral Story to Production.
During this weekly series, a process of creating or adapting an existing oral story is hen followed by the creation of visual storyboards. Participants will then use their storyboard to analyze and further refine their created or adapted oral stories. The newly created storyboard can now be used to produce written versions of the stories, or a graphic novel, or play, or video or any other form of story production.
