  • Noncredit
  • Fort Collins

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Once upon a time . . . Long ago I remember listening to stories my grandmother told me. I am Katy Little, storyteller/applied anthropologist, and I teach this class with storytelling to spark the memories and imaginations of the participants.

You will learn techniques for finding stories from personal life experiences to enhance your ability to communicate. Everyone has stories and the process of sharing those stories will be the focal point of the class. We will use audio and visual examples used to demonstrate the variety of "wordsmiths."

This is a fun class and that will help you discover the importance of listening. As someone tells a story your mind will say, "I have a story very much like that".

Let your life take flight through story!
