Maximizing Your Writer Voice

Instructor: Lisa Carter
Track: Fiction and Nonfiction

Editors and agents look for authors with a strong or unique “voice.” Identify your writer’s voice and enhance it.

Each story has a flow of sound like music. A unique beat, rhythm, tone. Writers, too, have a voice, recognizable throughout their entire body of work. Some singers have a crystal clear quality of tonality like Julie Andrews like a bubbling, high arching fountain. Others write with a deep, full sound like Etta James, possessing a rich, Mississippi River quality. Your writing voice is already part of you, the sum total of your personality and experiences—the indefinable essence of who you are.
