November 8-10 is Weekend With Your Novel held by UW-Madison's School of Continuing Studies. If interested, please register here:
"Join us for Friday night’s workshop, The Conditions that Create Voice led by Laurie Scheer. We promise a fast-paced, in-depth overview of many techniques for improving voice found in today’s well-reviewed novels. If you’re signed up for Saturday’s workshops, this workshop is a free bonus for you.
Recommended reading beforehand: The Conditions of Love, by Dale Kushner (Grand Central Publishing, 2013). Laurie will discuss the charismatic voices that shine throughout the book. This is a literary novel, a first novel written by Dale Kushner, originally trained as a poet.
You don’t even have to read the suggested book to glean good tips for your writing, but we hope you can find the time beforehand because that will enhance your workshop experience.
Take home new ways of looking at the development of not only her characters’ rich voices, but the overall novel’s voice.
This workshop presents techniques that apply to all types of writing. You’ll be among writers of many genres seeking tips to improve their voice writing skills."
If you plan on attending just Friday night, cost is $35 payable on the website.
