Human books are encouraged from the from the following areas:

  • Performers
  • Designers

Book readings will be 20 minutes long – 12 minutes to share a story with your readers and 8 minutes to talk with them and answer any questions they may have for you. The story you share with your readers could be about a project you have been working on, a passion, lessons you have learnt on the job, a production experience, your best teaching moment, or the unique aspects of your role. Your story must hold value for the readers – ie. They should take something away from reading your book.

Example book titles:

  • Things I Wish I Knew As A Beginner Teacher
  • A Day In The Life of A Professional Stage Manager
  • The Gift of Circus Arts
  • Pearls of Wisdom Shucked Over 30 Years In The Drama Classroom
