Emerging Writer Workshop Series: Performing Your Work with David Jón Fuller

Cost: $30 or $100 for all four workshops (WC members pay $25), contact  or 943-7555 to register.

Note: This workshop is limited to 12 people.

“Gulp — you mean I have to get up in front of people and read?” Learn how to get past stage fright and concentrate on what really matters: letting an audience enjoy your work. Learn basics of using your voice, delivery, addressing an audience, and getting the most out of your writing.

Participants must bring a sample of their own writing (up to 250 words for prose, 30 lines for poetry) which they will read out loud as a part of the workshop. Yes, I know this is already giving you a heart attack.

David Jón Fuller, Aqua Books Emerging Writer-in-Residence for January, was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. After attending high school and nearly every heavy metal concert that came through Winnipeg in the late ’80s, he earned an honours degree in theatre. As an actor he has been in multiple held-over plays at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival and performed with two orchestras, including excerpts from Shakespeare for the world-renowned Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra before an audience of 1,600. He’s performed Chekhov in Icelandic and is proficient in not only fake stage fighting but also real fencing and jiu-jitsu.
