Master Class with Patti Gauch: The Search for Voice, the Next Step! 2019
November 7 - 10, 2019
Join Patricia Lee Gauch for The Search for Voice, the Next Step!, a workshop for experienced writers.
Voice is the novel’s storyteller, the inroad to character, the guide to the narrative, the road inward as well as well as outward. It is the spirit–the soul and the heartbeat–of the book.
Using the work of some of our best young adult and middle grade fiction writers, like Philip Pullman, Nicola Yoon, John Green, Maggie Stiefvater, and others, writers will take next steps to refine and finally discover their most authentic Voices.
Patricia Lee Gauch–writer, award-winning editor, and publisher–has been on a search for Voice since her earliest publishing days, convinced it is where good story begins.
