Effective Readings Workshops
As a performance coach, one area of specialization I enjoy is helping writers to read their work more effectively in public. I offer one-on-one coaching, group workshops and writing conference presentations.
Here’s information about Saskatchewan Writers Guild workshops in Prince Albert and Saskatoon this coming fall:

For some of us, reading our work aloud is a wonderful, fulfilling experience for which we have the knack. For others, it’s a torturous, nerve-wracking event that must be endured in order to sell our books. And then some of us sense we’re doing “okay” but lack the feedback required to give a really great reading.
This workshop is designed for writers in the last two categories. The first half of the program will cover the elements of an effective reading and practical ideas for improving presentation skills. During the second half participants will read briefly from their writing, receive constructive feedback, and have the opportunity to practise the suggested changes for the benefit of themselves and the group.
