All Levels. Public speaking is the world’s leading phobia. Although writers tend to be bookish types, at some point you’ll need to discuss or read your work in front of an audience, be interviewed on TV or radio, or take part in a discussion panel. In this busy session, you’ll learn (and practice!) how to speak into a mic, do a public reading, read an audience, handle a Q&A, and use comedy techniques to win over a crowd and overcome stage fright.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
