Your Narrator’s Compelling Voice

Loading Events

In this course, you will learn what ingredients give the main character in your novel a compelling voice. Writers will discuss how the protagonist’s voice drives other characters and the unfolding plot action. Each participant is expected to bring their own novel that is a “work in progress.” Together, the class will workshop each participant’s novel and assist each author in conceptualizing and improving critical scenes. For the first class, please bring your novel in progress.
