Participants will workshop dramatic readings of poetic and dramatic selections of their choice or by selecting material provided by the instructor. Over a few weeks, we will work as a collaborative group to share, critique and polish our readings with different exercises on articulation, diction, and interpretation. Our final class will be a celebration of our work with our invited guests at a local cafe or restaurant for dramatic reading and coffee and dessert. (Place to be decided.)

Instructor: Pam Yates is Associate Professor of English at Blue Ridge Community College and teaches ESL, composition and world literature. Some of her teaching projects have included theater performance and reader's theater for her students in China and Japan and more recently, "Poetry Around the World" to celebrate international education month with bilingual students in the ESL program at BRCC.

Additional Fee: On the last day, budget between $5-$10 for our final class outing.
