Miles Davis once noted: “Man, sometimes it takes you a long time to sound like yourself.” “Miles had a point,” says instructor Allison Landa. “We don’t so much find our own voice as curate it over time, sifting through a variety of craft points and influences so that we may – at long last – sound like ourselves.”

Voice doesn’t develop overnight, nor does it come to us in a dream. It takes trial, error, and experimentation. In this half-day online workshop, we’ll discuss our own voices as writers, using in-class readings to both expand and challenge our views. We'll also do a cycle of guided writing exercises to get a better sense of our own unique sounds, syntax, and sensibilities.

"By the end of our three hours together," Allison says, "you’ll walk away with clear next steps and fresh inspiration to continue the journey toward honing your singular voice."

 

About The Writing Salon's Remote Classes

Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, The Writing Salon has moved all spring classes to a remote learning format. You will be able to participate in live class meetings via Zoom videoconference. To attend classes, you'll need a phone, tablet or computer and access to the web. You can participate in the class from wherever you'd like, whether on your living room couch or in your home office. Before your class meets, you'll receive an email from The Writing Salon with more information about Zoom and your remote class. If you have any questions about remote learning, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at hello@writingsalons.com.
