The Workshop

Hello Storyteller Academy 

Workshops are 2 weeks of hands-on learning and practice with live teaching by the instructor. We recommend that you make sure you have the time available to invest when purchasing a workshop to make sure that you get the most out of it that you can.

That being said, workshop materials are ONLY AVAILABLE during live runs so if it is something you want to study at a later date, you do have the option of treating it like a self-study and grabbing a copy to save for when you have time.

Mentor LIVE! Classes

Mentor Live | Elective Courses will host a ONE week “Mentor Live” run for each elective course upon release where you’ll receive exclusive hands-on guidance from the elective course mentor and exclusive access to their private group where you can interact with other students of the course to receive feedback, support, and CC. The mentor will be present during that week of the Mentor Live to answer questions & provide feedback on mini projects. Elective courses are offered as a "learn at your own pace" and can be reviewed at any time, anywhere.  All materials will be yours to keep. Outside of live runs, these courses will be available as a "download & go" self study option at a reduced price.

(Mentor Live seats are limited based on instructor capacity per course and first come first serve. Mentor Live seats will be available for PRE-REGISTRATION during the 2-week pre-sale prior to course launch)
