J.C.’s Tuesday Session:

The Art of Organizational Storytelling: Beginning, Middle, and End

From the attention-grabbing hook to the thrilling conclusion, all stories have a structure – as does each project, organization, funding appeal and grant proposal. In this highly-interactive workshop, participants will borrow from the time-tested crafts of playwriting, filmmaking, and fiction to infuse their funding appeals with the themes, details, and emotion necessary to compel an audience to lean forward and listen closely.

Back by popular demand, and offered in an expanded format, this humorous and engaging workshop will overcome writer’s block, inspire new perspectives, and make it so you can’t wait to pick up your pen and tell your story.
