Finding Your Voice
This workshop helps you find that authentic signature that makes your writing distinct and immediately recognisable. Elsewhere you will focus on honing the craft of story, plot, place and character. In our sessions, you work at conveying these elements in your own unique voice. It is your writer’s personality. Developing voice is an ongoing process, improving with your confidence as a writer. Understanding style, perspective and tone are crucial. Through reading and writing exercises you will leave the workshop with a better sense of how voice makes your work outstanding.
