Finding your "unique voice" is the same as finding the "edge" or "spin" that every agent and publisher will look for in your writing. Do you know what it is? This workshop will help you explore your voice, and add the edge to your writing that makes it interesting for your readers... and marketable. As you come to truly understand and express yourself, you'll understand your audience more, as well. Your writing can become more purposeful and focused, and your pitches and proposals more focused on what agents and publishers are looking for: your unique "value propositions" and "takeaways."
