Limited Capacity seats available

It's never too early or too late to prepare for your time in the spotlight, especially as you're building a long career as a professional writer. This session will teach you the most important elements to focus on when publicizing your work and yourself on TV and radio interviews, and at readings. As part of a lively critique session, we will show clips of authors in a variety of situations and invite participation in a discussion on what works and what doesn't. Topics include: What to avoid at all costs (behaviors, language, gestures, appearance); how to get your message across while plugging your work graciously; how to hide nerves and find the right mind-set; how to correct an interviewer; and how to handle tricky questions/situations.
