Testimonials

"A really great way to get out of your comfort zone and prioritize story over technology, technique, and ego."
Ricky Morales, Story Of/ 2018
Founder & Director of AltSalt Digital Literature Studio
"This experience was a chance to go deeply into the process of telling a story along with how other people tell their stories and blend the ideas together to discover a more universal layer to the narrative. The way this experience was organized enabled me to get out of my own way and see my own attitude to working with the creative process with a team from a fresh perspective."
John Lloyd, Story Of/ 2017
Artist & Designer
"It was an intense weekend where I learned the importance of presenting your story to others. If it's great but you can't explain it, that takes away from it."
Olivia Mercado, Story Of/ 2018
Graphic Designer
"The mix of skills in our group was really balanced so it was enjoyable to play to people’s strengths and work efficiently. I rediscovered how much I like collaboration. The skills of the group led to the format which Influenced the story."
Thomas Slattery, Story Of/ 2017
