“How do I prepare an effective slam strategy?”
“The person ahead of me changed my concept of art- how do I follow that?”
“I’m walking into what appears to be A FULL-SCALE NIGHTMARE PERFORMANCE SCENARIO AND THERE’S NO ESCAPE!”


Reading the Room is a workshop series that prepares writers to kick ass on stage. We’ll explore what’s scary, how to have fun when stakes are high, and most importantly: how to read your audience. Tune in and see why every room is rooting for you!
