How can teachers, counselors, and others tell stories from their work by combining word, image, and tune?
This workshop is a studio experience to assist participants in designing and producing a three- to five-minute digital story that joins narrative, images, and music. Participants craft and record first-person narratives; collect still images, video, and music to deepen the narrative; and follow a process through peer response and instructor support to edit their stories.
Northwest Writing Institute (NWI) classes are offered to teachers, counselors, parents, veterans, and all community members interested in the power of stories to help us understand and practice human connections for the good of all.

About the Instructor
Kim Stafford is the founding director of the Northwest Writing Institute at Lewis & Clark College, and the author of a dozen books of poetry and prose, including 100 Tricks Every Boy Can Do: How My Brother Disappeared (a memoir), and The Muses Among Us: Eloquent Listening and Other Pleasures of the Writer’s Craft (a book about writing and teaching). He approaches writing as a chance to compose stories we have carried into poems, essays, radio commentaries, blessings, rants, parables, and other forms of “tikkun olam,” the healing of the world.
