1-On-1 Storytelling Coaching

Brian Ellis

If you have a story in mind or you just know that you have a personal story to tell, work with a coach to dive into your narrative, find new meanings in it and practice telling it. Expect exploratory conversations and tailored assignments.

Program Details

  • For storytellers at any level, focusing on the story or the performance or how the two elements come together. Also learn about virtual and local venues for live storytelling.
  • Sessions are 75 minutes long. Brian will contact you by the first week of the term to schedule. Use your sessions within the term; no refunds for unused sessions. Individual sessions must be cancelled with Brian 24 hours in advance; otherwise the session is counted against your package total. You must be registered before participating in a writing session.

Refund/Drop Policy

If you want to drop, you must do so online via MyPCC or by contacting a Registration office within six calendar days after the start of the term. No drops or refunds on partially used coaching packages.
