Activity: Talk or presentation types › Oral presentation
Writers must employ rhythm, not only in metered poetry but also as looser patterns in all creative writing, to stimulate and communicate with an audience. Any series of written words suggests a rhythmic oral presentation (or a few), yet writers often struggle to recognize and consciously manipulate those rhythms. I present a workshop that I use with second-language writers in English, for whom this difficulty is particularly acute. The workshop strengthens the link between the written and the spoken, for “hearing” a written page, and for “speaking” through a page being written.
