Writing Fiction: Voice and Style
There are a variety of craft elements at the disposal of a writer seeking to craft fictional stories—from developing plot to world building to rich characterization. Voice and style is the quality within the writing that makes it authentic, unique, and engaging, conveying the author's attitude and personality as the world of the novel, short story, or screenplay is unfolding.
In this class, open to writers of novels, short stories, screenplays, or teleplays, we’ll discover the best way for each student to develop and accentuate their own voice, in order to create unique work that stands out regardless of fictional medium or genre.
Open to both the novice and advanced writer, students will have the opportunity to bring in and workshop 3-5 pages of their current writing project (encouraged but not mandatory), while also generating new work as aspects of craft are discussed and practiced.
No class 11/25.
