About This Class

Do you have author's who seem to have such a unique voice that, even if their name were not on a book you would know it was written by them?

Do you feel like you don't have a solid handle on your own voice, that you would like to "write like ______" but that you also do not want to simply imitate them?

This class is designed to help you discover who you are as a writer, who you WANT to be as a writer, and whose work inspires you. Through a series of exercises we will examine what unique attributes you bring to your writing, what you love about others' works, and how to blend these things into a magical voice that only you can have. 

I am so excited to bring this to you; please leave a review if you found it helpful.

Happy Writing!

Barbara
