MANCHESTER, NH — Bringing your stories and characters to life and making them memorable is essential during a public reading. This workshop will give you some basic skills to prepare for and perform a reading of your own writing. Some of the sections this workshop will cover are: choosing the right selection, preparing and practicing, creating your character (again), and in-the-moment awareness. You will use writing samples to practice within the workshop and do short, live, practice sessions with feedback. This workshop is perfect to help you prepare for the upcoming Flash Fiction competition!
