What makes a good reading? In the literary world today, writers often reach a wider audience through readings than through publication. Yet most writers are not trained to read their works aloud. Even well-known writers may read with either too little—or too much—expression. In this master class/workshop, participants explore the wide range of successful reading styles. Each participant presents a poem or short passage of prose for feedback from the group, under the guidance of the instructor, and then works toward a livelier, more effective presentation, which often includes a deeper understanding of the work being read.
