The Anatomy of Storytelling (Oct. 16)

Join us to hear from Barbara Reyelts, a MacEwan University Visiting Artist in Journalism. As a journalist, Reyelts uses powerful storytelling to capture readers, listeners and viewers. She will share tips and techniques to translate your organization’s key messages into vivid stories that connect, inspire and motivate your target audiences.

This event is in partnership with the MacEwan University Bachelor of Communication Studies.
