How to front up! A public speaking workshop run by Fifi Colston

Ever  quaked at the knees when you've been asked to address a group? Want to promote your work effectively?

Delivering a workshop or presentation is an essential skill for all writers. It may be a way to supplement your writing income, you may be asked to give a presentation at your book launch, you may be asked to talk at your children or grandchildren's school, you may be asked to run a mini-workshop for a group of writing colleagues. Fifi is the perfect person to show you how to do this. She has delivered numerous workshops to both adults and children on illustration, writing, craft  and Wearable Art;  she knows what works. She has featured over the  years as a presenter on Good Morning, What Now, poet on National Radio, event MC and Wellington stand-up comedian.
