WORD FACTORY PRESENTS:

2019 Short Story SUMMER Course — Workshop 2

Finding Your Voice with Preti Taneja, winner of the Desmond Elliott Prize 2018.


‘Voice’ is one of the most mysterious aspects of fiction to master. But what is it? How do you develop it? Do some people find it more easily than others – and if so why? Can you maintain it while making all of your characters sound unique? Even if your character is unlikable, living in the past or is from a world very different to your own, a strong voice will help your readers trust in the world you’re creating, and keep them wanting to know more. Working with writer Preti Taneja, whose award winning debut novel We That Are Young is written in six voices crossing genders, social backgrounds and generations, this Word Factory masterclass will enable you to experiment with aspects of style including point of view, tenses and structure, allowing you to keep your work fresh, hone your authorial voice, create unforgettable characters who have minds of their own, and writing your readers won’t be able to put down.

Class size limited to 25 places.
