What is “voice” in fiction? How does one establish voice, sustain it, complicate or even undermine it?
In this workshop, we will consider voice as a fundamental problem of craft and narrative, reading literary and theoretical works that illuminate questions of perspective, dialogue, mood, description, structure and tone. We’ll examine all of this in relation to our own short stories, in engaged and constructive discussions of the writing of each of the workshop participants.
Class meets Mondays: July 8, 15, 22 and 29.
Students are chosen by Mark Doten on the basis of a manuscript submission. Applications must be received by Friday, May 10 at 5 pm. Click here for submission guidelines.
