Free Event: Writing for Narration

Montreal’s association for technical writers (formerly STC-Montreal) is hosting a free event:

Writing for Narration with Katherin Vasilopoulos

Sure, you know how to write for the printed page, but can your words be spoken aloud? Can you write for the ear as well as for the page?

Join us on April 24 to find out how to write for the spoken word, as we host “Writing for Narration” by voice artist Katherin Vasilopoulos.

Prose writers don’t fear lengthy sentences or polysyllabic technical terms, nor should they. But what if you need to include breath points? Emphasis? How do you write stage directions?

If you’re planning on writing video or audio scripts for technical products, then this informative and fun evening will help you avoid some of the more obvious mistakes, like writing sentences as long as this one (which include spurious parenthetical comments) and which end with a lengthy word like pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.
