Arts for the Armory
Basement, Room B8

How to read your poetry

Instructor: Gloria Mindock
Saturday, July 25th, 2015
Class is limited

How you read your poetry is important and how you present yourself in front of your reading audience. In this workshop, you will learn how to read your poetry effectively, clearly, and with the right emotion to keep the audience with you throughout your reading. Participants will learn warm-ups, vocal exercises, tones, flexibility, rhythm skills, articulation, inflection and text intention. Participates will practice reading their poetry and receive feedback.

The importance of using eye contact, breathing, and self-expression will help the participate engage with their audience. Interpretation skills will be discussed. The instructor will use various theatre techniques that will help give the reader better skills for reading their poetry to the public.

Many writers get nervous before giving a reading. We will focus on some relaxation techniques to help lower the anxiety of reading your work and lowering the self-conscious self.

Let your readings bring you to your audience by taking this class.
