Any writer, once they become published, has to get used to the idea of reading their work aloud in public. It’s inevitable that you’ll find yourself in front of a microphone at a spoken word night, or in a school, or at a book festival, and be expected to give a good account of yourself and your writing. This can be nerve-wracking, but also incredibly exciting. Performer Alan Bissett will give tips on how to approach this so that it becomes enjoyable for both yourself and the audience, giving tips and techniques that will boost your stage presence and your confidence.
Alan Bissett is a novelist and playwright, who has eighteen years’ experience of performing his work onstage, since his debut novel Boyracers was published in 2001. He has also written and performed four acclaimed one-man shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, including The Moira Monologues and its sequel (More) Moira Monologues, which won a Fringe First in 2017. He was Glenfiddich Scottish Writer of the Year in 2011, shortlisted for Creative Scotland Writer of the Year in 2012, and the short film which he wrote and narrated, The Shutdown, won numerous awards at domestic and international film festivals.
