Once we reach a certain age, most of us have stories we want to tell, and reasons we believe people should listen. After working for 20 years with young children and their stories and play (using the books of Vivian Paley as a jumping-off point), I began to notice the ways in which children used short stories to “practice mental health” and engage with friends. This led me to develop characters (an alter ego, an imaginary friend, and a chicken); some storytelling strategies, and a map.

In this three-week study group, we’ll use the map to field test my findings, with the goal of developing a more collaborative approach to storytelling, one that could improve the ability of humans of all ages to communicate through story. Each session will last approximately 90 minutes.
