Speak Up: Your Words Will Be Heard


Monday, November 17, 2014 - Monday, December 22, 2014
10:30 am - 12:30 pm


As a writer, you are an artist. As a presenter of your words, maybe not-so-much. Reading one’s writing aloud so that it’s appreciated to its potential requires an array of skills that might need some fine tuning. In this workshop, you will practice and improve your timing, pacing, projection, expression and body language. To gain confidence, you will read aloud first from a famous work or two, and then, as our meetings progress, present and rehearse the best writing of your own. You will develop a style that’s not so grand as acting, but not so bland as recitation and, by the end, will have the poise and expertise to connect powerfully with every audience.

6 Mondays, 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., 11/17/2014–12/22/2014
