Every genre has its own unique signatures that readers come to expect, known as voice and tone. These elements make it possible to identify the genre within a few pages. Nailing your novel's (or memoir's) voice and tone will not only make sure you’re meeting readers’ expectations, but it can increase your chance of publication. This workshop will demonstrate these two terms through powerful examples from contemporary fiction/memoir, and explain how to use such things as word choice, syntax, character personality, and more to consciously create them in your work.
