Storytelling With Week In The Life™

Enrolling now


Storytelling with Week In The Life™ is designed to get you in the mood for documenting a seven day period in your life. 

Curious about Week In The Life™ generally? You can read more about the project here

This workshop is modeled after the popular Storytelling With December Daily® and Storytelling With Project Life® workshops and is designed to walk you through all the facets of the project in an way that encourages and empowers you to be the boss of your own storytelling experience. 

Here's a look at what will be covered in the workshop:      

Lesson One | Looking Back: Video walk-throughs of all my past Week In The Life™ albums along with thoughts on what Ali's learned over the years

Lesson Two | Before Documenting: Establishing your mindset, setting up your Design + Story Plans (based on what's most important to you to document in any given season)

Lesson Three | During Documenting: Tips and ideas for capturing your words + photos during the actual week

Lesson Four | After Documenting: Bringing your words + photos into your album (basically how to tackle completing the project after you've collected all your content)

This workshop isn't specific to any documenting year and is meant to be a more comprehensive + evergreen look at the project/process as a whole. Ali won't be making an album in this workshop but will share images and ideas based on her years of completing the project to give you confidence in your own direction. 

Ali will continue to share to her annual documenting plans for this project each year on her blog. Her hope is that you'll be encouraged, inspired and empowered to approach telling the story of your week based on your own season of life.
