Scary Story Workshop

        Jeff and Guild members have taken their craft into high school writing classes in Howell and Brighton. Jeff and his fellow storytellers help teach students the vibrant and critical link between writing stories and telling them.  These workshops help students understand, through the use of storyboards, the idea that writing, reading and speaking are intrinsically related.
