Description

Part of Growing Room 2019

In this workshop, experienced speech arts teacher and award-winning writer Ruth Daniell will guide writers through the process of preparing an excellent literary performance. Participants will learn the basics of posture, eye focus, and vocal projection but also gain insight to the more sophisticated tools of vocal variety, emphasis, pause, and breath. This fun, fear-banishing workshop is designed to encourage writers to connect and engage with their audiences and gain confidence with the emotional nuances of public speaking and performance.

Instructor: Ruth Daniell
Venue: Native Education College
Date: Saturday, March 16, 1:30pm – 4:00pm
Cost: $15
