Workshop: Developing writer’s voice with Lee Kofman – SOLD OUT
What makes a literary work truly original is not the degree of its polishing, but the writer’s voice: their particular joy, angst, humour, credo, the word choices and the world views expressed. The emotional truth of the voice is everything in writing. Even the best story won’t work if you don’t get the voice right. Come to explore what YOUR voice is like. This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to explore their inner world and learn how to make use of it for literary projects.
There will be writing exercises in this workshop, so bring something to write on such as a laptop or paper.
Limited to 15 places. Snacks provided.
This workshop will be held at University of Newcastle NUspace building and a room number will be confirmed via email prior to the event.
