Workshops

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.

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.
