I’ve put together a really fun, short online class — if I do say so myself — about Finding Your Writing Voice for Skillshare. It’s about exactly what it sounds like, focusing just on voice in writing. I often talk about voice in my other classes, and it’s my favorite lesson, so I finally decided to do a self-contained class on just that. In it, I talk about voicey writers like Kerouac and Parker, and I also share my groundbreaking theories about what Beyoncé and Britney can teach us about writing. I also walk you through a final project in which you’ll do your best to write in your very own voice.
Here are the things that are cool about a Skillshare class:
- It’s quick. The video lessons total about a half-hour.
- I did this one in narrated PowerPoint slides, so it’s accessible to anyone with hearing or visual impairments.
- It’s cheap. For just $8 per month, you get unlimited video access to all classes. This means you can take this class, any of my other classes (I also have sessions on writing about pop culture and putting together a nonfiction book proposal), or a class with Susan Orlean, among the many, many other offerings.
