Portland: “Writing voice-driven narrative” with Suzy Vitello on Voice

May 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$10

It happens in a coffee shop. Or at the gym. Or driving your car in traffic. If you’re a writer, you hear voices. So, how do you mold these voices into stories? How do you build a narrative around the odd phrase or comment? What are the elements of voice, and how can you use style and form to their best effects to amplify voice? What about genre and form? What about jargon? What about appropriation? How might you tackle authenticity and believability without grabbing for cliché?  What are the elements of a compelling voice on the page? Tune in on May 2nd at 7PM at Willamette Writers PDX, and be part of the discussion. More details coming soon.

We meet every month!
