Voice is the element which all agents and editors say they are looking for in a manuscript – but that’s by no means the only reason to work hard on the word-by-word text and textures of your novel. Whether your taste is for writing which is rich and rare, or sharp and spare, In the end, the words on the page are your only interface with your reader, and if you prose doesn’t work on the reader as well as it could, your story will never really fly.
In this practical workshop we’ll use short exercises to explore what this all means for how your characters and your narrative speak. You should leave with a clearer idea of the tools you need to raise your writing to the next level.
