Western Carolina University is offering a workshop that combines business management, marketing, entrepreneurial activity and economic strategies with the art of storytelling.

"Telling Your Story" is being offered Friday at the school's Office of Continuing and Professional Education, beginning at 9 a.m.

The workshop will be led by Tim Hall, director of the Storytelling Center in Bryson City. Hall has been involved in theater, writing and storytelling for more than 50 years.

Participants in the workshop will learn how storytelling is one of the most important tools that entrepreneurs and nonprofit managers have at their disposal. The workshop will emphasize participant interaction, and assignments and activities will be designed to strengthen students' researching, reading, presenting, communication and writing skills.

The $59 cost of the workshop includes a networking lunch.
