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.

"I absorbed every bit of material… I’ve paid for other writing seminars in the past, but none came close to the value I received from your summit."

"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?"

- Tawni Waters, I.L.A. award-winning author of Beauty of the Broken, The Long Ride Home, Siren Song and So Speak the Stars.

Your Teacher

Hi, I'm Daniel. I'm a writer, teacher, PhD researcher, and book editor. I create easy-to-implement techniques that help you master the craft of fiction.

I've given lectures on plot at the AWP conference and other writing festivals around the US, and my work has been read at the Iowa Writers Workshop. My fiction has won the Hodges prize, the Toni Brown scholarship, and I've published short stories and essays in many journals. In my regular life, I teach advanced writing skills at a great university. 

Since I started teaching online, I've worked with hundreds of writers as a coach and teacher. Over two-thousand writers subscriber to my newsletter, "Writing Related." 

I'm currently working with a publisher on a novel set in Taiwan: it involves unhappy English teachers and a ghost.
