A2CAF Workshop | Become a Fearless Storyteller with Ryan Estrada

June 10, 2023 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm

Author Ryan Estrada has been thrown from a moving train, was almost eaten by lions, and was even set on fire. But the scariest thing he’s ever had to do? Tell those stories on stage. How did he go from nervous in front of a crowd to a three-time Moth StorySlam winner who turns his stage performances into comics? In this workshop, Ryan will use a foolproof secret method to cure stage fright and develop storytelling skills that you can use to make comics or to get ahead in any career. A series of fun, interactive minigames will create a safe, welcoming environment that will have even the shyest participants jumping up to volunteer.
