The Story Exchange

$1,149

This revolutionary new program is for storytellers who have written their book, and now want nothing more than to connect it with readers! You’ll join a small “connection crew” of writers your own age who will work with you to promote and connect your book with readers - so you don’t have to “sell” all alone. They’ll help you create your book trailer, flyers, and marketing materials. The centerpiece of The Story Exchange will be your very own book launch - a live virtual event to celebrate and discuss your book and creative process. Promoting as a team is so much better than going it alone: just as you work to help them, they’ll work to connect your book with the readers you’ve dreamed of reaching. It’s the final step of your journey: making meaningful connections with readers through your story. 

Note: All class times are East Standard Time.

Unlock the magic of storytelling through audio with our two-week summer camp, where young writers craft their own audiobooks from start to finish! We will start by writing captivating short stories, followed by recording and editing our creations.

This class is all about exploring our voices, understanding the power of the audio medium, and finding the confidence needed to tell stories out loud. At the end of our class, each audiobook will be published on Spotify and Apple Podcasts as an album/collection of short stories. The cover art for the album will either be designed by the members of the class, or by our fabulous Written Out Loud designer, Naomi Giddings! Storytellers will determine how many short audio productions they produce, as well as how long each story lasts.

This program includes: 2 hr classes, 4 days a week for 2 weeks; 16 hrs total, and an invitation to StoryCon.
