WORD FACTORY PRESENTS:

Short Story Course 2018

On Being Heard with Sharon Eckman

A practical workshop of reading your work aloud

Writing is a solitary job and the prospect of reading work to a live audience induces trembling limbs and a sense of a voice which belongs to someone else in most writers. Sound familiar?

By the end of this workshop you will have learned ways to combat stage fright; gained tips on breath control, projection and how to read dialogue. Most importantly, you will leave haven taken significant steps in communicating your words in the way you want them to be heard.

Sharon Eckman is an experienced actor, singer, workshop facilitator and key member of the Word Factory team. Using acting exercises and games, she will encourage you to overcome anxieties about presenting and communicating your work. Everyone will also get a chance to read to the rest of the group in a supportive, non-judgemental and creative environment. Come prepared to play as well as work. Whether you have read in public or not, this is an excellent preparation for presenting your work or preparing to read at our short story course salon in July.

Class size limited to 25 places.
