What’s Your Story?: Harnessing the Power of Personal Narratives (Writer’s Toolbox)

As writer Ken Kesey said, “To hell with facts! We need stories!” Fortunately, everybody has a story. Indeed, we each have many. Stories make a life, and they keep our lives going long after we are gone. They help us connect with each other, both at work and in our personal lives, but often they are difficult to tell, in part because we forget that vulnerability is among a storyteller’s greatest strengths. At other times, we merely convey an outline without capturing the true significance of an event, weakening the impact of our stories. Join Stephanie Whetstone, Assistant Director of Princeton Writes, for a liberating exploration of how to make the most of any story you have to tell.
