Workshop Overview

Digital stories have been used to tell personal narratives, record moments of insight, and even sell products. But what about our stories from the wild—shining stream, rippling grass, leaf shadow flickering across a hand? We will write short scripts that weave person into place, film local glimpses in the forest and at the river, and compose a tiny film. Participants must bring a phone or camera, and a Mac laptop computer or iPad.
