International storyteller and bestselling author Cat Weatherill reveals the tricks of the trade when it comes to being compelling in front of an audience.
How can you be more comfortable and effective when reading your own work and talking about yourself?
Confidence, content and delivery all come under the spotlight in a lively, interactive workshop suitable for writers of both poetry and prose.
Tickets are exclusively for SoA members and cost £60pp (incl VAT) including lunch and refreshments.
The workshop has very limited spaces so make sure to book early to avoid disappointment.
Cat studied Drama at Hull University and worked professionally as an actor and a singer before discovering storytelling in 1998. Championed by the Hay Festival, she quickly established herself as one of the most exciting and distinctive voices in British storytelling.
As a performer, Cat is bold, magical and strong. She performs with extraordinary focus and intensity, and brings a distinctly female energy to the stage. Her career regularly takes her around the world, but she will still happily perform at a village fete for tuppence and a cream tea.
She is also a best-selling children’s author, with books translated into ten languages. Her latest book, The Hairy Marys, is a quirky school drama about fame, gender and the Suffragettes.
Cat lives near Stratford-Upon-Avon in a four hundred year old cottage. She is single and struggles with online dating, but it has given her countless stories, a full length one-woman show and eighty thousand words of memoir.
