Description

Part of Growing Room 2019

Though writers spend much of their creative time in solitude when a magazine is launched, a book is published or as a result of programmers realizing that their writing is excellent, writers are also often asked to perform their work in front of an audience. And often, writers are not as comfortable in front of a microphone and a group of people, as they are in solitude with their keyboards. In this workshop writers will be offered the opportunity to become better readers and performers.Writers of any experience level will be afforded the opportunity to hone or develop a performance style that suits their work and comfort level. Through discussion, video examples and performance practice in front of their workshop peers writers will, ideally, find a mode of reading or performance that works for them. Participants will read existing texts as well as their own to determine the variety of ways a text can be interpreted for performance.

Instructor: Dina Del Bucchia
Venue: 24 West 4th Avenue
Date: Tuesday, March 12, 2019, 7:00pm – 9:30pm
Cost: $15
