Find Your Voice Summer Storytelling Workshop Kickoff & Giveaway

Find-Your-Voice-Logo

The Find Your Voice Summer Storytelling Workshop kicked off today and to celebrate we’re having a blog hop with lots of giveaways! We’re going to have a blast this summer and we really hope you play along! 

This workshop is about finding your storytelling voice. You are an awesome person with amazing stories, so this summer we’re going to work together to find the most genuine and authentic way for you to tell those stories.

This workshop is for everyone! You definitely don’t need to be a scrapbooker or paper-crafter to play along. We’ll be telling stories through pictures, photographs, social media, prose, and more. The only thing you need is a willingness to become the author of your own story and the courage to step outside of your comfort zone.


As a contributor I am thrilled to be participating in a workshop that encourages me to explore and strengthen my own voice. Storytelling is such an important part of society, and yet, it is often viewed as lowly & unworthy pass time, meant only for the entertainment of children.However, without stories – without documented memories – without voices to share experiences, all that we know about our past would still be a mystery. To me, it is important to document my life as it is right now for both my future self and my family. I am excited to see how this workshop plays into my overall story and how my voice evolves over the next eight weeks. 

I truly hope you’ll join us this summer as we work together to find the most genuine and authentic way for you to tell your stories the way you want them to be told. We’ll be telling stories through pictures, photographs, social media, prose, and more. The only thing you need is a willingness to become the author of your own story and the courage to step outside of your comfort zone.

    It is so great that you are thinking of telling your story from a history perspective! There is so much awesome social history getting told by memory keepers that otherwise wouldn’t have been told, and I think that is amazing.

    Hi! I’m here from the blog hop, and really enjoying reading each contributers’ thoughts about what the workshop means to them. Your history perspective is great–it’s true, we wouldn’t know half of what we do about history without the personal stories people made sure to share. It’s exciting to think that our memory keeping might contribute a bit to some future historian’s understanding of this era! 😀

      So true, so true. And on a smaller scale, but still through the lens of history, how cool would it be if we had documentation that our great-grandmothers provided? Glipses into their everyday lives – glimpses into our own personal history and how events shaped our ancestors and consequently us. Man, I’d *love* to have a scrapbook with journaling from my grandparents…

    Can’t wait to hear your stories! I have also been thinking about stories from the past in my family and it’s certainly something I think I should document!
