PUBLIC SPEAKING: Strategies for Presentations, Convincing Arguments, Great Talks and Lectures

25-26 February, 2015 in Ljubljana, Slovenia

From ancient Greece until the 19th century, it was a standard part of one’s education to be taught rhetoric: the art of public speaking and how best to make a compelling argument. This is no longer taught, but its lessons are more valuable than ever. This workshop will help participants learn how to give strong, dynamic, engaging and convincing public talks, lecture, and presentations, as well as teaching how to make strong arguments in one-on-one settings. From Powerpoint presentation design to speaking from a podium or to a classroom, from interviews with a potential client to giving talks to an auditorium or on television, this workshop will help participants to come across as more thoughtful and confidant.

WRITING FOR ANGLOPHONE READERS: Tactics for Foreigners Writing in English

Nov 18-20, 1700-2000 in Ljubljana, Slovenia

This workshop is geared toward any non-native speakers of English who would like to write for Anglophone readers. Whether the genre is fiction, non-fiction, articles, or academic essays, there are core differences between how Slovene (as well as other central and eastern European) writers approach a writing assignment, and how their Anglophone counterparts go about it. As elaborated in this article, while this central European writing style is acceptable in central Europe, it is not considered to be “good” or sometimes even readable in the Anglophone world. This workshop, which is linked to the professor’s annual Writing for Publication workshop at Filofaks, will explain the differences between writing here in Slovenia, and writing for Anglophone readers. There are certain expectations that Anglophone readers have for any sort of writing, from academic to magazine articles and even to fiction, and these expectations must be understood, if not met, in order for foreign writers to find success publishing in English. This workshop will help participants understand those differences, and how to target their writing so that it appeals to the widest possible readership, whether they are writing in English as a second language or are hoping to have their work translated into English for publication. While the European essay style is acceptable in central and Eastern Europe, it is not acceptable elsewhere, whereas the Anglophone style is enjoyed around the world. For writers hoping to appeal to a wider audience, this strategies in this workshop will prove invaluable. The workshop pairs ideally with the professor’s Writing for Publication workshop, but can also be taken alone.

WRITING FOR PUBLICATION: Everything You Need To Become a Writer

Nov 4-6, 1700-2000 in Ljubljana, Slovenia

While most writing courses teach you how to write better, there are very few courses anywhere that teach the practical side of writing as a profession. This workshop will teach students how books are published, how to write a winning book proposal, how to get a literary agent, how to engage an editor and win an article commission for a newspaper or magazine, and how to publicize your book when it comes out. If you have ever dreamed of writing and publishing, either as a career or as a sideline, this workshop will teach you everything you need to get started. The workshop is divided into three related classes, one on fiction, one on non-fiction books, and one on journalism and articles. The tricks of the trade will be taught by your professor, Dr Noah Charney, a best-selling writer of fiction and non-fiction, and award-winning columnist. Dr Charney, an American living in Slovenia, consults to Mladinska Knjiga, Beletrina, and Zalozba Mis, and has worked with many Slovene authors, including Vlado Kreslin, Luka Novak, Branko Djuric, Gabriela Babnik, Goran Vojnovic, Bozidar Novak, Janja Vidmar and Joze Pirjevec. If you are interested in writing books or journalism, in translating, or in publishing fiction, non-fiction, academic work or articles in English, this workshop will teach you what you need to get published and make money in the world of writing. Learn more about Dr Charney’s work by visiting www.noahcharney.com. You can read his weekly column in The Daily Beast, with 12 million monthly readers, in which he interviews fellow authors about the writing life and tricks of the trade. Dr Charney is author of the international best-selling novel (also a best-seller in the Slovenian edition), The Art Thief, as well as non-fiction books, including the best-selling Stealing the Mystic Lamb.
