The Stratford Storytelling Adventure is a series of events and workshops that will transport our town to the world of storytelling. If you wish, have the chance to perform your unique story “live”!
What makes a great story? How to mine your life for them? How to develop as a storyteller? Find out from Stratford resident and Storyteller, Nina Lesiga. She teaches storytelling for the Fairfield Continuing Adult Education Program and partners with the Westport Library to produce Pecha Kucha 20x 20 storytelling.
