Description

Masterclass: Voice with Vikki Wakefield

‘I’m looking for a distinctive voice,’ says every editor and publisher ever. But what is voice? How do you find it? Is voice inveterate, like being blue-eyed or left-handed, or can it be changed and controlled?
During this full-day workshop you’ll work through reading and writing exercises to help you develop an ear for voice and push your writing to another level.

Format

Masterclass for emerging and established writers. More information on program formats and level definitions can be found here.
