After the Storm – Learn how to tell and deliver your great story – July 2021

Run in the style of New York’s ‘The Moth’.

Supported by the Adelaide Hills Council | Part of Winter Words 2021

“Stories reveal ineffable parts of ourselves that can’t be expressed any other way. We all need stories to understand ourselves and other people, and to create the world we want to live in. People need stories — and we need you!”

We are all storytellers. It’s part of being human, but we don’t often get the chance to tell our stories to a listening audience in a sculptured, measured manner.

Author, Rachael Mead

Adelaide Hills Council, as part of Winter Words 2021, has commissioned author, Rachael Mead to assist storytellers – ordinary and wonderful people like you – craft and present their stories in just ten minutes.
