Giving voice to your own work on stage is a powerful opportunity to connect with your readers, build your audience, bring your work to life, and simply be heard. Doing it well, and getting the instant positive feedback from a listening audience, is one of the greatest pleasures in a writer’s life. Whether you suffer from stage nerves, lack confidence in your voice or delivery style, or just know you could be taking it to the next level, this workshop has your back. While performance mastery takes a great deal of practice, this crash course will give you concrete tools and expert guidance for how to break through fear and blocks, get to your natural voice on stage, and hone your own performance style.
