About This Class

ec0baafb

Get in touch with the unique bits of your personality that will make your writing stand out. (Yeah, it’s a little shrink-y and Oprah-y, in the best possible way.) We’ll talk about voice from every angle: the lit-geeky (Jack Kerouac, Dorothy Parker, The New Yorker) and the pop-star-ish (Beyoncé and Britney might come up). We’ll explore ways to get comfortable with being vulnerable and take chances with your writing. We’ll also talk about karaoke or opera, if the mood strikes.
