There are countless ways to tell a story, whether that's through writing, speaking, painting, weaving, music, and more. And all of us have a unique story to tell.

The Center for Creativity and University Center for International Studies invite students to participate in our What's Your Story? series, which consists of workshops on different storytelling methods that can help you share your unique identity, history, and ideas. Both domestic and international students are encouraged to attend!

This workshop will cover basic approaches to narrative storytelling through the medium of podcasts. Attention will be given to exploring what kinds of stories attendees would like to tell. The crux of the workshop will be spent listening to examples of stories, uncovering what makes them work, and how to create an audio narrative that works for you and your specific audience.

This workshop will not cover specific instructions on recording devices, how to use audio editing software, or what platforms to use for publishing podcasts. There will be time at the end of the workshop for Q&A in which attendees may ask questions regarding this information.
