What is this mysterious thing called voice? Tone. Word choice. Dramatic monologue. Persona. How do we mine the many voices within us? Using published models for inspiration, we will explore voice through group discussion and various writing exercises. Readings will be taken from the work of such writers as Louise Glück, Frank O’Hara and Carol Ann Duffy. This workshop is designed for writers of all levels.
