Okay, y’all wrote your butts off for 8 weeks in our first level Find Your Voice workshop (maybe you even took it more than once!), you learned to start hearing your own voice, figured out what’s unique about your own style, and gained confidence in the types of stories you’ve got buried in your noggin. Now, you’re ready for some practical tools on storytelling itself. You’re ready for a bit of feedback. You’re ready to be a real gosh darn writer. This is where Find Your Voice 2.0 comes in.

Over 8 weeks, we will be diving in to the elements of story: those universally accepted building blocks that create strong, solid tales whether in fiction, memoir, blogging, genre-writing, or poetry. Join us to take your writing deeper, begin crafting fuller narratives, and step into the full potential of your voice.

"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."
