Find your Voice with Annette Bay Pimentel!
Editors and agents often say that the main thing they look for in a submission is a strong voice. But if you ask them to define what voice is, they usually flounder. This workshop explains voice, provides contrasting examples of writing elements and discuss how the differences affect narrative voice. Participants will also have an opportunity to write/revies their own work using techniques leaned in this workshop.
