These four Zoom masterclasses take place over the 4 Fridays in February (5th,12th,19th, 26th).
They are for storytellers who have created their own stories for oral telling.
Storytellers are invited to bring their work in progress to the masterclasses where they will work together with Svend-Erik and the group to get to the heart of their story.
It is a chance to really sharpen your story, sharpen your telling and leave with a tale which is much clearer and brighter than when you began.
Svend-Erik has been creating and telling his own stories for nearly 30 years and has been coaching storytellers for just as long. He is acutely aware of the challenges one can encounter when embarking on this journey of composing and telling your own creations. These masterclasses are a safe environment in which to try out your stories and develop them with expert guidance.
Svend-Erik takes only 4 participants on each course.
In the morning after a warm-up, each group member gets to tell their story and receive feedback which always serves to lift both the story and storyteller.
After a lunch break participants get some private coaching with Svend-Erik away from the group.
In the final part of the workshop day, each storyteller shares their work in a session which is recorded. Svend-Erik uses this video to give his final feedback to each member of the group.

"Many, many thanks for the wonderful series of Master Classes you gave us. I thought it was amazing the way you homed in so exactly on what each of us needed to do to improve our stories while at the same time supporting our faith in our storytelling; and also the way you encouraged other participants to make valuable comments. I am particularly grateful for the help you have given me in overcoming sudden blocks in my storytelling, something that has been dogging me for some time, and for all that I have learnt besides that during these 4 Classes." Jackie Carothers, Storyteller
"Svend is a wonderful teacher! He is passionate about the world of story and manages to detect the strength and weaknesses within the tale. His workshops are joyful with valuable as well as kind feedback. Even though the workshops are online now, he is able to connect with each and everyone – creating a vibrant and engaged environment. I highly recommend working with Svend and discover new and surprising ways in your telling." Franziska Droll, tourguide and storyteller
"Svend is an amazing storyteller. His tales always weave an unhurried atmosphere with a full range of emotion, and before you realize it, an hour has flown by. He is also an excellent teacher, who can spot and communicate exactly where your strengths and weaknesses lie, and give accurate and practical suggestions for improvement. He gives the moment his full attention, giving encouragement, building confidence, and demanding more at all times". Linda Perttula, Storyteller and tourguide
