Creatively Speaking Toastmasters: Writers Polishing Public Speaking Skills

Are you published? Is it your goal to be published? Among other things, this means you want to share your work with the world. Increasingly, authors are not only expected to put good words on the page, but to also have good speaking and presentation skills. Have you got an interesting and eloquent answer for that question: “what do you write?” You might be interviewed on radio or television, or on stage. You might be asked to give a talk. You might be invited to share your work by participating at an open mic event.

Location: 
We meet on the 2nd and 4th Monday evening of the month, at the offices of WFNS: 1113 Marginal Rd., in downtown Halifax. Enter through the WFNS door, opposite NSCAD's Port Campus.
