You may think that one of the benefits of being a writer is that you can shut yourself away from the world, but if the recent pandemic and its plethora of Zoom calls have taught us anything, it’s that public speaking is a skill any writer should have. Whether it’s giving a workshop, offering a reading, or speaking to an adoring audience of thousands (we can dream!), the ability to speak in a clear and engaging manner is essential, but sadly often overlooked. Fiona Young-Brown will guide you through some of the key elements of speaking well and will share how she went from trembling to terrific before an audience. For all levels.
Author and Toastmaster Fiona Young-Brown has written more than a dozen books and her articles have appeared in a wide range of outlets, both in print and online.
Please note: Since our Fall catalog was printed, Kentucky’s number of COVID-19 cases has grown exponentially. Therefore the Center decided to start all October classes online for the safety and health of our community. Public Speaking for Writers will meet online via Zoom.Register
