Students will show off their storytelling skills and raise their voices loud and proud April 28 in the Hollywood by the Horns Story Slam. Designed to both give students the chance to hone their public speaking skills as well as learn about storytelling mechanics and creativity, the even provides a safe and welcoming haven for those who want to step up to the microphone and let their words flow.

Led by Dr. Toddy Eames, an assistant communications professor,  Hollywood by the Horns is the name for Communications 390, a course developed to “build up and maintain meaningful relationships between working professionals in Hollywood, and the dynamic students at Cal State Dominguez Hills,” co-founder Ryan Bowles Eagle, an assistant professor in the communications department, told CSUDH Campus News in 2016.

The mechanism that enables that is a workshop all Comm 390 students participate in:, “Finding Your Voices,” which allows them to enhance their storytelling skills and practice their public speaking skills.

“This class is very important because it allows students to learn the structure and history of storytelling but also allows them to dig deeper into their own storytelling,” said Lisa Callamaro, the workshop instructor for the “Finding Your Voices” workshop.

This is the fifth year Hollywood by the Horns will share its Story Slam, which will feature eight students who have worked to tell an engaging story before a live audience.

“This was a huge preparation for the students because now they’re ready to courageously share their stories, while also learning the science behind storytelling,” said Callamaro.

The event will be held on Sunday, April 28 in the LSU Ballroom C at 10 a.m.
