Imagination is always a good foundation to tell a good story, and Geneseo will host a workshop next month that helps students and others tap into their creative side. The Geneseo Storytelling Institute is a series of nine sessions aimed at improving storytelling skills. The course will discuss why storytelling matters and methods for capturing the power of stories. Participants will have the opportunity to perform in storytelling events for the Geneseo and Rochester communities and, for students, potentially at G.R.E.A.T. Day.

The Institute, which begins Jan. 21, is open to all Geneseo students, faculty and staff, and will be led by Associate Professor of Education Sharon Peck, Ids Project Director at Milne Library Mark Sullivan and Education and Instructional Design Librarian Michelle Costello. Students can earn credit.
