Master Class with Patti Gauch: The Search for Voice, the Next Step! 2019

November 7 - 10, 2019


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, experienced writers will take next steps to refine and finally discover their most authentic Voices.

Join Patricia Lee Gauch–writer, award-winning editor, and publisher–who has been on a search for Voice since her earliest publishing days, convinced it is where good story begins.

Please note that this course is designed for experienced writers. Writers who have taken the previous “Search for Voice” (2016) are welcome.
