Writers sometimes get to make up new words. It’s quite fun. Trust me. In this case, Un-introvert-able, is the name of my new class specifically for writers.
Here’s the synopsis:
Writers are often introverts. And sometimes without preparation you need to say something in public. But fear takes over and you say nothing. In this class, I take what I’ve learned from teaching software developers how to be better speakers and apply it to impromptu speaking for writers.
Topics that are covered:
- How the introvert’s mind works
- Overcoming fear
- Preparing for the impromptu moment
- The verbal story pitch
- Asking questions at conferences and seminar
- Readings and book launches
Class: 1 hour. Lecture style. Some class participation.
If you’re interested in having me present this class at your writer’s group or conference, contact me.
