Think: a Moth Radio Hour story, a Ted talk lecture, a This American Life story, or wherever your own interests, passions and imagination take you. Skills covered will include creative writing, acting, storytelling, and presentation techniques. Final stories will be recorded and posted on YouTube or other platforms as students wish.
