In a digital age, the craft of writing has never been more important. Incubating narrative energy, modulating voice, building special emphasis and exporting short-form concepts are just a few of the many, minor, learnable and teachable skills that will improve anyone’s writing craft.

This session is designed for:

  • Writers who need to construct a stronger, more compelling voice
  • Editors sick of fixing the same errors of emphasis over and over
  • Anyone who who wants to learn how to better define character and advance narrative
