The Master Class: The Search for Voice 2016 | October 16 – October 19, 2016

Please note: This workshop is full. Send us an email to join our waiting list!

In the rush to publication, writers often miss the opportunity to stop and take time to bring their writing to a higher level. We admire the very language–words and sentences and passages–not to mention the extraordinarily original characters, of Jerry Spinelli, Kate Di Camillo, Sharon Creech, Grace Lin, and others. We wonder at their extraordinary relationship with language and storytelling. How do they do it?

During this workshop, experienced writers will join editor and writer Patti Gauch as they reach for that power in language, exploring the passion-driven moment, authentic spirit and voice, and the hidden power of the concrete detail, coming to language in new, bold, and original ways.

This class is limited to 10 experienced or published writers.
