Lawrence Howard and Lynne Duddy of Portland Story Theater offer three different storytelling workshops so that you can learn to express yourself with this amazing art form. In our workshops, we teach intentional storytelling where you’ll learn how to tell stories improvisationally by being resourceful and using the power of spontaneity. Our approach teaches you to trust the story and speak extemporaneously from the heart.

We offer three different workshops to fit your level of interest and your schedule.

Please call 503-284-2226 before registering if you:

  • require a disability accommodation.
  • are interested in bringing a workshop to your business, school, nonprofit. (We have group rates)
  • have any questions or need additional information.
