Ivan Coyote is the author of 10 collections of short stories, one novel, the co-editor of an anthology, a collection of letters, and the producer of four short films, six full-length theatre shows, and three albums that combine storytelling with music. Still, Ivan makes most of their living as a full-time writer and storyteller from live performances. Join them in this workshop for writers, poets, storytellers and public speakers designed to help you transform your nervous energy into a memorable reading. With tips on selecting material, preparing your work for performance, memorization (or not), and how to make your body language work for you. Ivan will also share some stage secrets about microphones, soundchecks, and selling your books. To get the most out of their experience, participants should bring a 3-minute selection of their work to be staged.
