826LA speech writing workshop

826LA@Hammer: SPEECH! SPEECH! SPEECH!

Recommended for ages 8–14

Your character has a lot to say. It’s time for them to speak out and say... what, exactly? Monologues deliver a message and steal the spotlight. This workshop gives students the opportunity to write speeches, complete with actors who bring their words to life. Eric Stolze has written super-short things for Disney, kinda-short things for Comedy Central, medium-size things for magazines, and super-long speeches for characters in screenplays.
