Event description
A BPA writing workshop with author and writing coach Emma Darwin. Voice, Psychic Distance and Captivating Prose

About this Event

Voice is the element which all agents and editors say they are looking for in a manuscript – but that’s by no means the only reason to work hard on the word-by-word text and textures of your novel: in the end, the words on the page are all you have to transmit your story.

In this practical workshop we will explore through short exercises how to make your prose rich and rare but never purple (except when you mean it to be), how to strip it back without it becoming drearily threadbare, and what this all means for how your characters and your narrative speak.

We will also look at Psychic Distance aka the art of showing rather than telling to bring your story to life.
