Style and voice: your ticket to an unforgettable writing voice
Your writing voice is your first contact with the reader. Here's a detailed training package, taught by expert authors, to improve and develop that voice.
Designed like a writing class With the energy of a live event
In March 2021, eighteen authors and teachers met over 1,700 writers at the Style and Voice Summit. They taught four days of classes on writing style, the writer's voice, and the writing process.
All the sessions were recorded: we would like to share them with you now.
This summit will demystify writing style, help you develop an unforgettable voice, build an easy and effective style toolkit, and to offer specific tips on the thorniest aspects of narrative prose, such as dialogue.
You'll finish this summit with new frameworks to write a compelling sentence and a fresh appreciation of the books you love the most.

Wow, these are probably things we already know, but don't really think a lot about. Having it all laid out like that makes it seem that much easier to understand and incorporate into our writing."

"Daniel respected my work and vision on a profound level but also had a keen editorial eye and a stroke of literary genius that took everything I’d written to the next level.
Is it weird that I think of him as my literary midwife?"

Should I watch the event in order, or pick and choose?
It is up to you! Each talk is distinct, but the event was designed to flow from building blocks to bigger questions.
