There's something gentle, deep, and caring about Andre's manner that easily coaxes one's creative stories to the surface. His techniques evoke memory and allow one to shape it easily into story form. And the best part is they can be used over and over to evoke more stories.

"Andre's personal story workshop immediately gives people the confidence that they can create interesting stories from their lives. The exercises we used in this workshop were immediately useable. I used them the very next week for a story I'm working on. Andre covered unearthing material as well as structure and the key elements of story. People left surprised and amazed at themselves. What great motivation to keep on working."
