The new Hotel Lincoln is a window to the most dynamic part of Chicago's North Side, Lincoln Park.
Like the neighborhood, the hotel is historic yet fresh, fun though eccentric and active but relaxed. It's where the energy of urban life meets 1,200 green acres and Lake Michigan.
Storytelling Masterclass with Kevin Allison
Sep 26 2013
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM
1616 N. Wells St.
Chicago, IL 60614
In this class, Kevin Allison (founder of The Story Studio, RISK! and member of MTV's The State) will teach you the skills to wow a crowd with your story. You?ll learn how to select compelling story topics, use the ?five beat? structure to build suspense, and tap into the larger thematic meaning of your ideas.
Students will need to bring to the class a notepad, pen and one very short (2-3 minute) story. For this short story, think of an individualistic quality about yourself. Maybe something you find a little daring to share. Something like, "Everyone thinks I'm hard as nails, but I'm secretly a softie!" or "I know it sounds crazy, but I really do believe in angels!" Once you have your idiosyncrasy in mind, see if you can think of a very brief story that SHOWS you being that way -- a story that will convince us of your claim.
