About the event

Talk To Me Workshop

How to Read Your Work Out Loud In a Way That Is Good!

Does the thought of getting onstage and sharing your writing make you wanna vom?

Do you feel helplessly locked into certain vocal inflections and physical mannerisms when performing?

Are you tired of being told you need to “be more vulnerable” but not being told how you might go about it?

I can help!

Talk To Me is a workshop focused on the performance of your own writing. This is a no-frills workshop in the style of a scene-study acting class: you show up, read your work out loud, and we talk about it. The focus in on clear communication; how to best make yourself understood, how to find and latch onto a simple point of view in whatever you’re writing—poetry, fiction, non-fiction, etc—and how to generously lead your audience through the emotional landscape of your piece. This class aims to guide you, using gentle and sustainable techniques,  through whatever blocks you from fully expressing your unique self, into the clear and urgent communication that already exists in your work.

When: May 29, 2021 11:00 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
