Workshop improves writer’s voice

A workshop aims to teach writers how to best deliver their work in front of an audience.

Workshop leader Tina Biello’s goal is to show how to capture an audience’s attention so they really listen to the words as well as technical advice on how to speak into a microphone or project your voice without one. The workshop will explore basic vocal techniques to connect breath, voice and text.

Biello trained at the national voice intensive at the University of B.C. and is a trained actor.

Biello wrote a chapbook of poetry, Momenti, published by Leaf Press.

The poems accompanied watercolour paintings at an exhibition in Montreal and Vancouver. Now eight of the poems out of her book have been composed into an album of songs called Dolci Momenti.

The voice workshop is set for Oct. 22, from 9 a.m. to noon and 1-3 p.m., at Nanoose Bay library on Northwest Bay Road. Cost $60.
