A writer’s life is often considered a solitary one – at least until the book is ready for public consumption.  With book readings, signings, sales pitches and author interviews – public speaking skills become a necessary facet of an author’s life. In this workshop, writers will learn speaking tips and tricks to help them bring their passion from the written page onto the public stage.
