Storytelling Skills for Writers’ Circles


You are in a writers’ circle or group and you are proud of your work. Your written work, your novel, short story, poem or play deserves an audience, so we are here to help you improve your storytelling skills.

With elements of our highly successful Be an Actor for a Day© programme, we can help you with your vocal skills, guide you and give you tips on reading out loud and presentation because you want to highlight your work in the best possible way.  We will also show you exercises to quell nerves and help with your breathing and preparation.

We work with groups of 10+ by appointment and share this special programme exclusively with writers’ circles.  We guarantee a fun-filled, relaxed approach to the basic “read out loud” skills we share.

Our suggested morning programme:

09h30 – 10h00  Intro, Fun character games and vocal exercises
