Reading Your Writing

Saturday March 7, 2020
14:30 - 16:30

Reading Your Writing is a workshop to help you overcome the nerves of reading your work to an audience. Josephine Clarke will give you the tools to effectively read your work, while touching on techniques and helpful thought processes that will enable your listeners to hear your work as you hear it.

In this 2-hour workshop, you will learn practical exercises for relaxing before a reading and of bringing the work’s meaning to the listener. You will also have the chance to practice reading with a microphone.

What is required of you? Bring an A4 page of your work and a can-do attitude.
