This is a workshop about finding the right voice or style to fit your story or novel or even poem. Writers are most known for how they tell a story, rather than the tale itself. Style is how we as writers present ourselves to the world.

Monte Schulz

I’ve taught at the SBWC since 2001, and have been a writer for thirty-eight years. I published my first novel in 1990 and spent ten years writing a thousand page novel of the Jazz Age that is being published in three parts by Fantagraphics Books between 2009 and 2012. [More]
