Our Programs

We will take the art of storytelling to you! Please see below for a list of our ongoing programs.

Budding Storytellers Workshops –   “Empowering the Voices of Tomorrow”

We host storytelling workshops within the Peel Region during the summer months, for children ages 9 to 12. (Registered members of our online community receive free access). These workshops are most suited for young writers or artists with an interest in further exploring their unique talents and building up their voices for impact. Sessions can go anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours and will feature live readings and presentations from guest facilitators, hands-on activities, peer review sessions, and lots of free giveaways. We also offer scholarships for students who meet the criteria.

We are available to host workshops for nonprofits and businesses upon request.

Looking to incorporate storytelling at your next community event? Our facilitators are equipped to work with you to bring your vision to life. To book one of our facilitators at your next event, email us: info@speakthewords.com.

Seniors’ Storytelling Circle – “Building a Legacy to Stand”

If the leaders of tomorrow expect to succeed, they must learn from the generations before them. Stories have the amazing ability to pass down principles that can build up those who hear them. Through our seniors’ storytelling circle, we hope to open up a safe space where older generations can share and record their own experiences as a means of discovery and deeper reflection. The location of the monthly sessions will vary but will typically be held in a nursing home or church environment.

Empower! Storytelling Hub (for adult writers, 18-65)

Every month, we lead a storytelling session exploring a key issue. This gives writers and artists a chance to further develop their thoughts, while also connecting with likeminded individuals. Follow us to stay up to date on our frequent meeting times and locations.
