Doing Poetry Right; VIDEO 23 (2012 Teleconference)

Meet Renée La Tulippe as she tells us about Doing Poetry Right!


Renée LaTulippe is a former English/theater/public speaking teacher and wannabe starlet. She is now a children's writer who composes poems for her video blog, No Water River, where she also features videos of renowned children's poets reading their own work. Renée is also the editor at All About Learning Press, for whom she co-authors pre-reading books and early readers, including Lizard Lou: a collection of rhymes old and new, and blogs on language and grammar (often under the guise of her alter ego, the Chipmunk of Doom). Renée holds a BFA in acting/directing from Marymount Manhattan College and an MA in English Education from New York University. She lives in Italy with her husband and twin toddler boys.


In "Doing Poetry Right," Renée tells us that poetry is meant to be read aloud, but most people -- including some teachers -- are afraid of it or simply don't know how to appreciate it. Focusing on reading/performing poetry out loud knocks poetry off its pedestal and makes it accessible and fun for everyone. Renée includes her top tips for bringing a poem to life (e.g., playing with language, character, diction, gesture, etc.), along with a lot of warm encouragement. Let's get out of our seats and start sharing poetry!

Doing Audiobooks Right; VIDEO 18 (2012 Teleconference)

Meet Larry Oliver as he tells us about Doing Audiobooks Right!


After college, Larry Oliver continued his education by pursuing his MBA at Lake Forest Graduate School of Management. He spent nearly 25 years as an executive officer of  3 NYSE companies. His expertise in communication skills, sales and marketing, customer service, training, motivation and coaching served these organizations well.

Larry entered the world of professional voice acting in 2007, becoming quite serious about it in 2009. He especially enjoys narrating audiobooks, animation, and character voice acting. His most recent audiobook release, in October 2012, Advice From Dad: Inspiration for the Next Generation by Bill O’Hearn, embodies much of what has guided him.

Daily, Oliver strives to become the person his dog thinks he is!


In describing "Doing Audiobooks Right," Larry tells us:

Just a few years ago there were a total of 2400 audiobooks recorded. There are presently nearly 50,000 titles available as audiobooks, and soon there will be well over 100,000! This can keep voice actors/audiobook narrators/performers busy for a long time. But, there are tens of thousands of men and women that compete for these titles everyday. This video will provide you with basic information to help you decide if this is something you have a burning desire to do, and if so, what the first steps to give you a foundation of becoming a “published” audiobook narrator/performer are.

Larry Oliver is the voice talent for Bill O'Hearn's Advice from Dad: Inspiration for the Next Generation.
