Finding your voice means more than choosing the best phrasing. It’s about getting to the core of what matters.
This class is intended for editors who would like to “unlock” writers who may be stuck in their writing process. It’s also for writers who want to get in touch with deeper emotional patterns, so that they can discover their own unique and authentic voice.
Attendees will have to stand up, walk away from their headphones and move through the space, finding greater freedom and more truthful impulse patterns. Then, they’ll go back to the desk to utilize their newfound range and depth. By the end of the class, attendees will develop physical options for defeating writer’s block, with new tools to find greater originality in dialogue and create more profound characters.
