Post-Conference Workshops:
The Mesmerizing, Unforgettable, Compelling Narrative Voice

Find the elusive holy grail of all story telling: a mesmerizing narrative voice.

During a five-day interactive workshop, sought-after writing coach Susan Brown will help you find your most compelling voice for memoir OR create a spellbinding narrative voice for fiction. Then, through carefully designed prompts and exercises, you will learn how to project and sustain this voice on the page.

In today’s market, your memoir, as well as your novel, has to read like a prize-winning novel. That means your project needs a storyteller (you, in memoir) whom readers will follow anywhere — one who is intelligent, witty, insightful, honest, and fearless. By confronting the differences between main character, point of view, and voice, writers in Susan’s workshop will develop an authentic narrative voice that reflects the worldview (universal beliefs) and personality (personal traits and attitudes) of the source of “voice,” the author. Leave Susan’s workshop with clarity, excitement, and an unforgettable voice.

The inestimable Susan Brown is a genius and one of the finest mentors anyone could wish to have. I don’t start a novel or revise one without consulting her.
