The Department of Literatures in English, University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona, will host a Speech-Writing Workshop on three consecutive Saturdays in July - the 11th, 18th, and 25th - from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The workshop, led by Emeritus Professor Edward Baugh, former public orator of the UWI, Mona, will be useful to professional speech writers, such as public-relations practitioners and executive assistants, as well as non-professionals who want to improve their speech-writing skills.

Professor Baugh has garnered an international reputation as an authority on Anglophone Caribbean poetry in general, and on the work of Derek Walcott in particular. As public orator, he has delighted and entertained audiences at the university's annual graduation ceremonies with his presentation of citations for honorary graduates.

Professor Baugh will share with participants the knowledge, skills and techniques in the art of speech-writing which he has accumulated over his many years as a public speaker and speech writer.
