Description:
Are you a creative writer, poet, or spoken-word artist interested in boosting your confidence and developing your presence on stage? Page to Stage is designed to enhance both the written and performance components of creative writing and presentation. Page to Stage welcomes all who desire to cultivate, learn, and polish both their writing skills and performance practice. Participants will engage in writing exercises to sharpen and explore their own dynamic writing style and voice; will be introduced to various performance styles; will learn how to prepare for performance (breathing, relaxation, and warm-up exercises); will practice performing and reviewing performances; will learn how to critique self and give/receive constructive feedback with classmates. This will be a safe space to learn, experiment, and build confidence. We will have fun as we grow together! Creative writers such as poets, spoken-word artists, and prose authors (fiction, memoir, non-fiction) who give readings will find value in this class. Registration cost is $69.
