The Narrative Voice: A Weekend Intensive

In this weekend intensive for educators, we will get to grips with the narrative voice across all forms and genres of prose writing. Short fiction, excerpts of longer fiction projects, lyric essay, memoir and any in-between projects that might be all of the above and none of the above are welcome. Our focus will be on charting a journey towards our own authentic narrative voice. The intensive will provide an opportunity to do so by engaging with our creativity through storytelling together in a generous and supportive environment. Sessions will chiefly consist of generative exercises to spark new ideas and discussion of published work intended to inspire and challenge. All styles, approaches and levels of experience are more than welcome.
