Writing with Fire!Creating Works that Rivet Your Readers
The week will help you find or further explore your voice as a writer. Voice is the edge every acquisition editor and contest judge looks for, beneath the writer's technical skill. Your voice – your fire, if you will -- is what gives your writing, from first to last, its true and lasting brilliance.
Great writers... successful writers... learn how to speak with "the voice of the soul, and the voice of the body." Power is released into your writing when you open these energies. Whether creating a novel, a memoir, or essays, fresh, riveting voice is essential.
