04/28 Public Speaking for Writers with Rae Dubow
In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to give a short reading of something they have written and be coached on their performances. After each person reads to the group, the instructor will offer constructive tips on how to appear and feel more relaxed and confident. In addition, participants will be given direction on how to enhance their communication and performance skills. Attendees should select a three to five minute selection from their own work, and prepare as if they were doing a public reading.
