Imagine that it’s your wedding day, and at the reception your grandmother walks up to you, looks you in eye, and says, “good choice.” Now imagine the same scenario, except this time the person who speaks to you is your ex. The same words, “good choice,” take on a very different meaning. Writers have the artistic license to speak through many voices, and the voices we choose have a large effect on our readers. In this workshop we are going to experiment with building personas and speaking through voices other than our own. We’ll all walk in someone else’s shoes and learn about our own writing styles in the process.
