Voice Driven Narratives

All Levels | How can voice—a narrator’s speech patterns, vocabulary, and degree of awareness—be the main source of conflict and tension, rather than action and plot? Through discussion and writing exercises, we’ll explore the technique behind crafting a narrator that is authoritative, vulnerable, conversational, or absurd. Authors we’ll study include Jackson, July, Orange, Johnson, and Sycamore.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
