Free Your Voice, Throw Your Voice [Mary Potter]
The main task of any writer in any form, writes Peter Elbow, is to win the reader’s trust. Voice is how we earn that trust, yet we struggle to find our voice and to throw it like a ventriloquist. We’ll read compelling voices to learn how they work, analyze our own voice, and play with voice in class and at home. Free your voice, generate new work, breathe new life into work in progress, have fun writing—and along the way learn how to write a great opening.
