With instructor Valentina Faloni, participants will explore tools for successful narration using different forms of storytelling including writing, cinema, television series, documentaries, the web, photography and music.
Each lesson is an individual workshop to experiment with various aspects of creative writing, starting from brainstorming, images, narrative works and current events. Students will work in pairs and in groups with students from the photography workshop to complete an experimental storytelling project.
Students will also complete a personal creative project in the form that best highlights their personal talents.
