in their own lives.

stories can be about anything - love, work, hopes, fears, the past,
even the future. An incident that sticks in your mind, a subject
you feel strongly about, a place you love (or can't stand), that's
the germ of a Digital Story!

write their script
record their voiceover

it is important that anyone wishing to attend the workshops is able

for the first time, makes all the effort worthwhile. And, of course,
they have gained a range of new skills.
