Defining Your Voice 2017 | May 18 – May 21, 2017

Defining what “voice” means may be subjective, but defining your voice is not.

As a reader, you know “voice” in an instant. It stands out. It rings true. It stays in your head. As a writer, you have a voice that is distinctively your own. It comes from within and without—inner conflicts, outside pressures, personal values, and your own particular views of the world infuse your work. You tell the stories that only you can tell.

If this voice belongs to you, then why is it so difficult to bring to the page? Sometimes it takes a little guidance to show you how. Join writer and editor Sharyn November to immerse yourself in rich examples of many writers’ voices as you work to develop your own.

Sharyn will host daily writing exercises on character, story, point of view, language, and believability. You will work to uncover ways to bring your voice to the page each time you write.
