Voice is perhaps the most daunting and elusive of all fiction writing elements. Yet voice is also key to writing memorable, compelling and believable novels. Let’s break the struggle to understand and develop our writerly voices in this session which draws on specific examples of music, visual arts, and performing arts to help writers explore the concept of “voice,” find their own, and bring it to life in their writing. Attendees need not know how to play a flute, tap dance, or sculpt to enjoy and get key takeaways out of the session! With an open mind, they’ll find fresh ways to understand and use voice to bring their characters and plots to life, and take away specific tips for developing, expanding, and applying voice to their current and future novel projects.
