Discovering Your Writer’s Voice

Most writers are so focused on their message or on writing good sentences, paragraphs, and chapters that it takes a long time to settle into their unique voice. In this workshop, we’ll explore what voice means and do some exercises to help you discover your own unique expression that will help you stand out as an author—and may also help build your platform! Bring paper and pen and/or your laptop.
