Podcast, Film and Creative Writing all rolled into one!

Work with StoryArk’s emerging professionals and with esteemed artists from all over the world to produce podcasts, short films, novel, short story, poetry, music, graphic novel and visual arts. Each day, students will begin in the large group for warm up activities, and then split into creative teams to develop stories reflective of the students’ interests and life experiences. Students have the option of delving more deeply into:

Podcast: Connect, collaborate and create original podcast episodes

Film: Produce original short films and tv episodes from script to screen

Literary arts: Develop a short story, poem, song, memoir, graphic novel within a community of writers

As a part of StoryArk’s commitment to bridge the digital divide, every student participating will receive an iPad and keyboard to keep.

StoryArk Festival

Celebrate student storytelling

Podcast, Film, Poetry, Short Story, Music Online – virtually July 18 at 4:00 PM

Join us in an online event like nothing you’ve experienced before. Multi-media, multi-sensory, multi-dimensional, the StoryArk Festival is designed and initiated by youth to showcase their stories in an engaging, high energy way.

Students from the camp will share their podcasts, short films, poetry, short story, and visual arts to an online audience and participate in Q&A afterwards.

In addition, one local student band will be selected to play at the Festival and will be mentored by sibling band NUNNABOVE who most recently was seen on America’s Got Talent.

Want to be that student band or know a good group to recommend Email steph@storyark.org
