About this Event

What makes for better ghost stories around the campfire? How do you decide what kind of ghost story is right for what age audience? Why should you let imagination do some of the work? This workshop with Loren Niemi answers those and other questions about the how and why of telling ghost stories. Suitable for any level of experience, it looks at what kinds of ghost stories we tell and what makes them produce a scream or a laugh.

This FREE event is open to everyone via Zoom teleconferencing.  After registering, you'll receive an email message with the Zoom link.

Loren Niemi is a storyteller, poet, writer, storytelling coach, and consultant who appears frequently at venues across Minnesota and around the country. He has taught and mentored many aspiring tellers. Loren received the 2016 National Storytelling Network’s Lifetime Achievement Award. He is the author of critically acclaimed books on the craft of storytelling and, most recently, a collection of retold and original ghost stories, What Haunts Us.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
