On Saturday, October 6th, develop your public reading skills and gain confidence to share your work in front of an audience. Learn techniques to prepare for public readings, reduce fear before readings and on stage, work with a mic, and give readings that engage audiences and leave them wanting more. You’ll also get practice and one-on-one supportive, useful feedback.
This event begins at 2:00 p.m. The SSgt Salvador J. Lara Casa Blanca Library is located at 2985 Madison St. Riverside, CA 92504.
