Performing Prose is an intensive designed to equip writers with the tools to connect with audiences during public readings of their work.
In two sessions, the course will introduce the fundamentals of performance. This includes techniques to increase vocal variation, phrasing, character development, authenticity and more. Using acting techniques and hands-on live practice, participants will gain confidence and experience in front of an audience.
Instructed by two professional actors, participants will be expected and enabled to perform in a comfortable, encouraging space.
This intensive is for writers who may be embarking on a book tour, preparing for readings at the end of an MFA, running a reading series, or contemplating any public presentation of their work.
