Help Your Characters Sound Like Themselves (Instead of Sounding Like You)

Whether we’re writing in first person or third, it’s vital for our characters to have distinctive voices. Even if you’re writing with an omniscient narrator, eventually there will be dialogue and when your characters talk, they should sound like individual people. We’ll use this session to discuss what makes up a voice, look at examples of strong character voices in published work, and delve into exercises designed to help you create those individual voices in your own work.
