Course Description

ENG 213
Performing Writing

Performance of writing creates opportunities for writers to prepare their work for readings, spoken word performances, conferences, and one performer shows. We reflect on the sources of our expression that come from memory, character and condition, and determine how to access them. We examine the intent and impact of various modes of writing and create strategies for presentation.We view and critique works from Ted Talks to spoken word and readings. Our practices include learning techniques for excerpting, speaking, coloring narrative, and dealing with live audiences and equipment.
