Do you want to be the star of the writer’s circuit?
In this two day workshop, stand up comedian Mandy Nolan and performer/academic Dr George Catsi challenge you to find your most powerful and engaging narrative and then use it to transform your story pitches, interviews, panels, keynotes and book launches!!!
For many writers the most comfortable place is behind the keyboard. For a writer to get the best traction for their book, they need to be comfortable and know how to engage the public space. They need not just to be a writer – they need to be a performer. They need to know who they are, what they think and what their story is. This is what an audience wants from writers. They don’t just want you to read excerpts of your book – they want excerpts of you!
George Catsi and Mandy Nolan are the creators of Authentic You – a unique approach to speaking and presentation that draws down on narrative to connect with audiences.
In the two day delivery of Authentic You for Writers George and Mandy will cover the following as they head towards a final 5-7 minute TED styled writer talk:
How to engage on a panel
Speaking to camera
How to tell the story of what you wrote and why
Story of self
Narrative informed dialogue
‘Saying is different to writing. As a professional writer it was really enlightening and useful to learn about the mechanics of delivering your thoughts. I can’t wait to put it into action!’ Laura Bloom.
