Simply writing a good story isn’t enough. You need to sell it to agents, editors, and readers. You’ll be expected to participate in discussions online and at workshops and conventions. You’ll want an “elevator pitch” and a way to show that you know how to use words, both in your writing and in your speaking. And that’s not easy. Studies show that “public speaking” is a fear many people have.
Join us on Wednesday, September 16th at 8pm EST for a discussion about “Facing the Public” with three people who have never experienced that fear. Writer/actors Keith Strunk and Teel James Glenn will answer your questions, hosted by Pocono Liars Club founder Michael A. Ventrella.
Teel James Glenn has killed hundreds and been killed more times — on stage and screen as he has traveled the world for forty plus years as a stuntman, fight choreographer, swordmaster, jouster, illustrator, storyteller, bodyguard, actor and haunted house barker.
