44: Voices Carry a Lot of Weight in a Story
Play • 23 min

The way a story is told out loud adds another layer to a story.

On this episode, we’re talking about how our physical voices can carry a story with inflection, pace, volume, tone, and pitch. Voice can even make us love a story we might otherwise not like, or understand.

Meet Asia Sampson renown poet and founder of The Asia Project (spoken word, poetry and storytelling)as he performs his new poem Desks Are Not Bulletproof and takes you through his creative process. If you love the way Asia describes how to use your voice and how to train as a performer, and you get as inspired by Asia as we do, South Florida people can join us June 23, 2018 for a full-day class with Asia. Details on our website (www.writingclassradio.com). All levels welcome. Limited space. We also have a two-part memoir writing workshop opened to the public, May 19 and 26, 2018.

Thank you for listening to Writing Class Radio.

Writing Class Radio is a podcast where you’ll hear true personal stories and learn a little about how to write your own stories. Writing Class Radio is equal parts heart and art. By heart we mean the truth in a story. By art we mean the craft of writing. No matter what’s going on in our lives, writing class is where we tell the truth. It’s where we work out our shit, and figure out who we are. There’s no place in the world like writing class and we want to bring you in.

Writing Class Radio is produced by Virginia LoraAllison Langer (www.allisonlanger.com) and Andrea Askowitz (www.andreaaskowitz.com).

If you have a business or a startup and need help telling your story, Andrea will come to your office and teach all your employees how to better articulate why they do what they do. Do it! Stories sell. Allison will come to your retreat and help guests write through their shit so they can live free and happier. Or, hire her to help your high schooler refine his/her college essay.
