Dana Norris: Writing Out Loud

Thursdays, January 25, February 1, 8, 15

This class will show you how to create, edit, and perform your own stories. We’ll show you how to turn off your inner critic and turn up your creative juices. Each student will move a personal story from the draft stage to a performance-ready piece of electrifying theater. In class we’ll create stories, discuss the fundamentals of live storytelling, and provide feedback on each others’ work. Outside of class you’ll be encouraged to attend storytelling shows and discover techniques you can use to enhance your own writing and performances. The class will conclude with a public show (date TBD) where students will join the storytelling community in full.


Dana Norris is the founder of Story Club, a nonfiction storytelling show held in Cleveland, Chicago, Boston, Minneapolis, and Belgrade. She is the Editor-in-Chief of Story Club Magazine and currently writes for Role/Reboot and Cleveland Scene.

Disheartened, he returns to his movie theater, where he falls asleep and dreams that he is the great Sherlock Holmes. Join us for this early classic. Screenings are free and great for the whole family!
