Whether you are (or want to be!) writing a blog, a novel, poetry, a play/screenplay, a short story, a new album; you've never written before; OR you just want to play with writing, the 'Find Your Voice * Tell Your Story' workshop is designed to teach you: 
A) how to write authentically so readers actually SEEK your work out,
B) how to actually begin (and finish!) writing using structure and craft,
C) writing techniques to strengthen your writing voice, &
D) how to tell if your writing is even any good once you've written it!

You will learn what makes your specific voice unique, what secret stories are already buried in your mind, and the writing techniques that will most help you edit your piece into something finished, readable-- dare we say-- publishable??

Through tons (over 20!) of writing exercises, you'll find yourself creating pieces you never dreamt of writing, telling stories you didn't know were inside you, and embracing images that will live in the minds of your readers long after they've stopped reading. Your voice deserves to be heard; come join us in finding your voice so you can share with the world stories only YOU can tell. 

"Finding your voice" doesn’t mean your voice never existed, it means being empowered to share your story, whether real or imagined, in the strongest, clearest, and most effective way possible. In Whitespace Writers workshops, we focus on liberating that little spark of something inside of you- that quiet pesky thing that says you MUST write, you LONG to write, even if you're not always sure where to start."
