The Craft of Story Interactive Workshop with teacher Kenny Sargent – Teen Activity

Taught by Kenny Sargent of Sargent Family Productions

Thursday, June 15th: 1:10pm – 3:10pm  No Fee; Ages 13 & older, limit 120

Building on last year’s Calling God’s Storytellers seminar, Kenny Sargent of Sargent Family Productions will host a deep-dive, interactive workshop on the craft of great storytelling. Regardless of the chosen medium (writing, speaking, video, audio, virtual reality, etc.), the principles of a great story are timeless.

The first section of this workshop explores the key elements that make up a great story. No amount of flowing prose, visual effects, or wonderful music can make up for a weak story. Get this right, and more than half the battle is won. The second part dives into the mechanics of strong writing. Great prose can evoke powerful emotions and responses regardless of genre, medium, or style. This section explores many opportunities to strengthen the actual words on the page to achieve maximum impact.  The third section focuses on identifying and streamlining your writing voice as well as the habits and practices of great writers and communicators. There will be plenty of time for Q & A. Filled with tips and techniques, the material is a must-have for those called as God’s kingdom communicators. Bring a notebook or device.
