Ever dream of making an audio book, attending an open mic, reading your work on a radio show, or just feeling more confident sharing your writing, or reading someone else’s work out loud? Then this is the workshop for you!
There is something powerful about the feeling of being in front of a group of people, confidently leading them through your story, and keeping their attention until the final sentence.
A great story is certainly a factor but equally important is your delivery. Factors to consider are:
- A good introduction sets the tone
- Knowing your material
- Breath support
- Varying sentence length
- Staying relaxed
Instructor, Catrina Poor, will start the session with tips, things to think about, and demonstrations. Following, each student will have a few chances to read their work and receive feedback from Catrina and the group. Students will also have the chance to break into pairs and practice.
The workshop is limited to 8 participants to ensure multiple opportunities to read.
Bring a story you have written (fiction, non-fiction, memoir, personal essay). The length isn’t important, as you will read excerpts of your choice. If you aren’t a writer but want to improve your reading, feel free to bring a piece of your choice!
Who should attend this workshop?
- Writers who want to participate in open mic sessions
- Writers who are published and do book readings
- Writers who wish to read their stories for radio shows
- Writers who wish to create podcasts or audio books
- Anyone who wants to improve their skills and confidence
