Mastering the Author Reading

In this fun and supportive three-hour workshop, author and professional speaker Melissa Hart shows how to captivate your audience the moment you step up to the microphone to give a reading of your work.

You’ll learn about breath control and posture, eye contact, the power of extemporizing, and how to pitch and pace your voice so that listeners aren’t even tempted to glance at their cell phones for the latest cat video.
This course is appropriate for authors of all levels and experience.
