Storytelling is a community event. Learning the stories of those around us—those we work with, those we go to school with, and even those whom we have just met—helps teach empathy. HerStry offers community centered workshops, both online and in person, to help you bring storytelling more intimately into your life.

In-Person Workshops

Our in-person workshops offer a chance for women to come together in an intimate setting to tell stories and empower one another. In person workshops are available upon request at the location of your choosing. Whether it be your book club, your writing class, or your workplace, HerStry will tailor the workshop just for you.

All in person Workshops are between 2-3 hours and include:

  • Tools and tips to tell your personal narrative

  • Getting to the bottom of WHY your story is important

  • Time for each participant to share part of her story,
    if she wishes.

  • HerStry journals for each woman in attendance



School Age Workshops

Our school aged Workshops are geared towards girls in grades 6 - 12 and focus on the power of storytelling and self-esteem.

It’s no secret that better self awareness leads to better self-esteem. It's also no secret that from a young age many girls learn to keep quiet, becoming a minor character in their own story. Let’s change that!

HerStry school aged workshops teach girls to take a hold of their stories and write them for themselves.
