Students sharing with students

StoryArk’s student groups gather to share their podcast episodes, short films, comedy sketches and short stories and enjoy each other’s company as fellow artists at the beautiful Grand Banquet Ballroom in Stillwater from 9 AM to 4 PM on Saturday, February 22. Executive Producer Lily Percy Ruiz from On Being with Krista Tippet (podcast), Sundance filmmaker E.G. Bailey (film), and Young Adult author Jacqueline West (short story) will discuss with students the fundamentals of their particular storytelling medium. Students will learn how writing for podcast, film and prose are similar and different.

In addition, each student group will share their narrative and discuss with each other the themes of the story and the technical details that helped create it. The day will end with a variety show where each group will share their podcast episode, short film, filmed sketch, or short story with family and friends. All creative work will be made available on the StoryArk Network webpage, podcast, mobile app and YouTube channel.

Thanks to the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council for their support.

This activity is funded, in part, by an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the State’s general fund.
