Sundress Weekend Workshops
Stage & Page : A Writing Workshop
May 18th, 2013
12PM - 8PM
Join us at Firefly Farms for a special weekend workshop on writing for the stage and page. Joined by visiting poets T.A. Noonan and Scott Fynboe, writers will have the opportunity to compose and edit new and old work.
How you read is as important as what you read. Join author and entertainer Scott Fynboe as he discusses mic skills, vocal techniques, and audience psychology to help you make the most out of reading your work for audiences and recordable media.
Originally from Binghamton, New York, Scott Fynboe has been performing on stage for almost thirty years, most recently appearing as King Phillip II in The Lion in Winter. Beyond theater, he has been a radio disc jockey, a member of The Pappy Parker Players improv comedy troupe, and Master of Ceremonies for The Vestal Violators, one of the few paid Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow casts in the world. In 2010, he received a PhD in English from the Center for Writers in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Currently, he lives with his wife and teaches in southeast Florida.
Despite the rise of multimedia, most people still interact with writing via the (printed) page. A text's appearance, then, is crucial. T.A. Noonan will explore some of the visual elements of writing, including space, format, and typography, as well as the basics of bookmaking.
NOTE: Participants will write new work but should bring at least one pre-written piece (poem or short-form prose) for revision. Bookmaking supplies will be provided.
T.A. Noonan is the author of Dress the Stars (Dusie Kollektiv, 2013), The Bone Folders (Sundress Publications, 2011), Petticoat Government (Gold Wake Press, 2011), Darjeeling (Ahadada Books, 2008), and Balm (Flaming Giblet Press, 2006). Her poetry, fiction, and nonfiction have appeared or are forthcoming in Hobart, Eleven Eleven, Ninth Letter, RHINO, specs, Phoebe, Harpur Palate, and more. Currently, she lives in southeast Florida with her husband, where she serves as Associate Editor of Sundress Publications, as well as Managing Editor of its imprint, Flaming Giblet Press.
As always, refreshments and dinner will be provided!
Tickets for the workshop are $50 or $40 with current student ID. Be sure to sign up today. Space is limited!
