      Previous participants say: "It was absolutely wonderful. Serious business, but also so much fun. As writers, we aren't always the best readers of our work. Mel, who has worked with big-name actors in LA and NYC, is the consummate pro. She's straight-ahead, no fluff, but she also does this magical thing: she gives you, by the end of the day, a fresh confidence in yourself and your work." "The inspiration we felt as we watched our fellow writers transform into confident, dynamic readers digging into the heart and soul of their own writing was priceless." "I have my first public reading in June for my MFA graduation. Until your workshop, I was really dreading my thesis reading...but now I see the importance of practicing and embracing the opportunity. Thank you for making me feel like my story was worth a listen!" "It was a superb privilege and pleasure to work with someone as knowledgeable and professional as Mel." Writers are often daunted by the idea of reading their work aloud, whether in a classroom situation or public presentation. This workshop will teach writers to see their reading as a gift to their audience. Using the same tools employed by professional actors, you will learn to prepare and present confident, clear public readings and to use reading aloud as a valuable self-editing tool. Neither acting nor public speaking experience is necessary to benefit from the craft of acting. During the course of this workshop you will: ▪    Bring a piece of your work you wish to read (one page, double-spaced, two copies). ▪    Be led in voice and body warm-ups using breathing and vocal exercises. ▪    Read aloud excerpts of published works by other writers to study pacing, phrasing, word choice and themes. ▪    Be coached individually by Mel as you read your work, with the class observing. ▪    Time permitting, you will get a second opportunity to read for the class integrating the techniques you've learned. FAQs   What's the refund policy The Flatiron Writers Room reserves the right to cancel this workshop if not enough people sign up, in which case you will receive a full refund. You may cancel your registration up until 5 p.m. on May 13, 2017, via Eventbrite for a full refund. After that date, no refunds will be made.
