The Voice is a Muscle with Lidia Yuknavitch
The Red Lion Hotel at the Park
Spokane, WA
Share this event:

Developing "voice" in fiction and nonfiction both is a tricky business. If it is your own voice, how to manage the tone and affect and what forms to bring to your story in order to get the truths to resonate takes practice. If it is a character's voice, what forms and strategies are available for making that voice distinct, vivid, and powerful enough to carry part of the story? In this workshop we will tease out the wide varieties of voice strategies available to prose writers and practice the fine art of building voices that no one can forget. In the process we will develop a series of metaphors that match the voices you call forth in your writing. You will go home hearing voices in the best of ways.

Lidia Yuknavitch is the author of The Chronology of Water: A Memoir and three works of short fiction as well as a book of literary criticism, Allegories of Violence. Her work has appeared in Ms., The Iowa Review, Exquisite Corpse, Another Chicago Magazine, Fiction International, Zyzzyva, and elsewhere. Her book Real to Reel was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award and she is the recipient of awards and  fellowships from Poets and Writers and Literary Arts, Inc. The Chronology of Water won the Oregon Book Award Reader's Choice 2012 and the PNBA Award 2012. Her work appears in the anthologies Life As We Show It, Forms At War, Wreckage of Reason.
