Reading Your Work at Poetry Readings

Many people who write poetry believe they could never muster the courage to read it in public.  If that's true, then maybe they're just not cut out to perform, right?  Wrong.  Reading poetry in public is a skill that improves with practice, like any other.  And the advantage of reading your poetry out loud is that it helps you improve your writing.  Sometimes what seems good on paper doesn't seem that way when you hear how your poem sounds.

The way to make yourself more comfortable about reading aloud is to prepare before a reading. See these tips on what you should do to get ready.  By following these simple suggestions, you will not only feel more confident and prepared, you will find the experience enjoyable as well!
