Age range 12 + Scared of speaking in public? You're not alone!

This accessible guide, written by a former teacher and poetry slam coach, will help tweens and teens find their voice! If you have weak, wobbly knees and a pounding heart when you face an audience - don't worry, that's good! Joy Jones is here to show teens and tweens that stage fright is your friend. With its funny, friendly, slightly irreverent approach, Find Your Voice helps young people feel more comfortable in front of a crowd and become more confident public speakers. Jones covers it all, from how to write and organise your speech, to how to deliver it and use audiovisual equipment, to how to troubleshoot when things go wrong.
