Another Option for Mastering Story Delivery: Acting Class

Here’s the latest entry in my (unintentionally) ongoing series on how to learn and master a story so your oral delivery of it sounds natural.

Heather Summerhayes Cariou, author of the acclaimed memoir about her sister, Sixtyfive Roses, responded to the most recent entry in this series, writing:

As a former professional actor, I would suggest that storytellers find a local acting class and attend it. What they might learn there will help immensely in terms of oral storytelling — and even reading their work aloud.

Cariou noted that she’ll be teaching “Presenting and Promoting Your Work” this summer at the 33rd International Writing Guild Conference at Brown University, the first week of August and that the workshop will include instruction in how to read aloud.
