The Extemper’s Bible has been the go-to source for extempers across the nation to find resources on demand. We’ve brought new weekly questions, strategy pieces, interviews, and more. Now, we’re bringing something new to the table: curated seminars for ALL extempers.
The goal of the Extemper’s Bible, dating back to the podcast, and reaching as far ahead as extempers.org, was to provide extempers across the nation with helpful, accessible resources to succeed in their craft. These seminars are the next step in that direction. With a wide range of topics to help you learn relevant information, to drills that will refine your skills, and with the experience of top-level lecturers, these seminars will be necessities for all extempers.
Seminar #1: Biden Cabinet Officials
The topic for the first of many of these free seminars will be Biden’s Cabinet Officials. You’ll learn all about the incoming administration, from the secretaries to the directors. You’ll also get 1 on 1 help with engaging drills to advance your extemporaneous skills, from already accomplished extempers.
This first seminar will be held on January 28th, from 6-7 PM CST. That’s 4-5 PM PST, 5-6 PM MST, and 7-8 PM EST. You can sign up using the link below:
This seminar will be led by some acclaimed extempers who you’ll want to hear from.
Katelyn Cai, who you might’ve seen on our National Points Race, will be one of the lecturers. She’s a rising junior from Basis Scottsdale, Arizona. Extemp has been her main event since 8th grade, but she’s dabbled in Congress, PF, and OO too. She recently championed International Extemporaneous Speaking at the 2020 Glenbrooks Tournament. Her other accolades include: placing 7th at the 2021 MBA Round Robin and garnering 11 UKTOC bids throughout her career.
Aditya Kalahasti, a rising senior from Solon, OH, will also be leading the seminar as a lecturer. He has been doing International Extemporaneous for the past 4 years, as well as World Schools and Extemporaneous Debate at the 2020 National Tournament. Recently he quarterfinaled at Yale and semifinaled at the UK Season Opener. He has additionally broken to octofinals at the 2020 National Speech and Debate tournament in World Schools Debate and won the Bethel Park/Black Hawk Invitational in IX in 2020.
You don’t want to miss out on the inaugural seminar. No matter where you’re from, what grade you’re in, or where you’re at in your extemp career, we’re here to help. And we can’t wait to see you on the 28th.
