Want to learn what voice is? Want to find yours?

28 May

On September 22 – 26 , you will.

Surrounded by the talent and support of the InMonsters, you will write and publish your own experiments in voice, and get feedback from both new and professional writers from all different backgrounds.

You’ll also read and comment on the voice experiments of those same writers, so you can learn from them, and they can learn from you. Think of it as an online writers’ think tank, where inspiration grows exponentially with each participating writer.

It’s free, and it’s open to everyone.

Join the Genius – Comment below if you want to be in on the challenge. Click subscribe (top right) to get Voice Week stories by email.

Meet the Founder – Stephanie of BeKindRewrite is a professional copywriter and aspiring novelist.

    Hi Stephanie,

    I didn’t know whether you were working with the pingbacks or wanted the links posted here. My first piece is up. I used an event described by five different characters rather than a setting or person. I hope that is okay.

      Huzzah! Welcome to the challenge. And don’t worry; we’re all just here to learn. : )

  19. christina kann October 14, 2013 at 11:10 pm #

    Sign me up!

  20. jubilare October 15, 2013 at 9:06 am #

    Alright, I am going to try this. Are there any suggestions or guidelines to make it easier on wimps like me who have a hard time with voice?

    • Stephanie Orges October 15, 2013 at 9:18 pm #

      Eeeexcellent *twiddles fingers maniacally*. You already have good experience using different voices in your WIP – Rosa talks differently from the narrator or the other characters. I’d start there. Imagine your voices are different characters with different ages, backgrounds, education levels, etc.

      This will be fun. : )

    Hi Stephanie,

    As a longtime closet InMoneer, I think it’s about time I come out and contribute in public. Got a place for me in Voice Week 2013?

    May you remain existential,
    Evan

    • Stephanie Orges October 15, 2013 at 9:19 pm #

      Of course we have a place for you! Welcome aboard – it’s good to see you outside of the InMon closet!

  22. True Brit October 25, 2013 at 4:21 am #

    • Stephanie Orges October 25, 2013 at 7:59 pm #

      Definitely! Do you have a blog to link to, or would you like to email me your pieces? (I can post them on my own blog and give you author credit.) Please let me know ASAP by commenting or emailing me at stephanie@bekindrewrite.com.
