The Storytelling Without Words Online Course teaches you how to embed stories in hearts and minds by using innovative ways of storytelling that don’t rely on words.

  • You’ll learn how to make the most of your audience’s senses and emotions and design experiences that engage them without overwhelming them with information.
  • You’ll leave this course with a toolbox that gives you new skills that can be applied to any project, no matter what medium you’re working in.
  • You’ll also have an understanding of how stories work and why they matter, which will help you when designing future projects.
  • You’ll learn how to use the language of symbols and metaphors to communicate ideas without using words and how to use sensory and emotional coding.
  • You’ll also learn how to create immersive environments where people can experience narratives without reading or listening to spoken words in any particular language.

As preparation for this course, we strongly recommend our Integrated Storytelling Fundamentals course, but it is not a prerequisite for participation.

All attendees will get a digital copy of Integrated Storytelling by Design, describing some of the theories and methods used as the basis for this course.
