taught by B.Frayn Masters
You labor in solitude, dreaming about being asked to give a reading, and even if you’re experienced, you suddenly find yourself behind a microphone wondering what, exactly, you’re suppose to do onstage. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to challenge and entertain your audience from your opening words, build suspense through your delivery, and develop seemingly off-the-cuff anecdotes and connectors so that your message lands in the hearts and souls of your audience. This workshop will be the appropriate mix of scary, fun, sweaty, and invigorating.
