Centre For Scholarly Communication

As a graduate student or post-doctoral fellow, you may be sharing, publishing and promoting your work professionally through presenting research at conferences, reading at book launches or release tours, or even guest lecturing within the academy. This two-part workshop will address reading as a tool for live performance and as a support for professional communication by breaking down and identifying individual vocal characteristics and building the foundations for improving spoken clarity. Session one will focus on live storytelling for creative writing while session two will focus on professional presentation for academic writing and can be attended as a short series or independent, specialized workshops. Both sessions will provide an opportunity to practice and analyze communication techniques, performance for text, and connecting to audience.

September 19: Live Storytelling for Creative Writing
September 26: Professional Presentation for Academic Writing
