Description

Voice is often the first connection to your reader and the most lasting, but how do you take full advantage of this important tool? In this two-session class, we will study voice at a deep level to learn the best techniques and generative exercises for connecting directly and quickly with our readers. In the second session, Meg will provide thoughtful feedback and advice on your work, helping you refine and deepen your voice in revisions. With its increasing importance to agents, editors, and publishers, doing a deep-dive into voice will help anyone writing in any genre, and you will leave with a deeper understanding of it as well as the practical tools to apply it to any future work. This class meets on two Tuesdays, February 1 and 8, 2022, 6:00-8:00 p.m. 

PLEASE NOTE: THIS CLASS HAS BEEN MOVED TO ZOOM.
