I've read dozens of books on writing style.

For this guide, I wrote up the best of those lessons in simple, easy to follow language.

Solve these writing problems

Where to put the most important word in a sentence?

Is it better to focus the reader's attention on verbs or nouns?

Why does "hypotactic" writing make your reader turn pages faster?

Learning about these writing techniques, and trying them out in practice sessions, has noticeably affected my ability to communicate and to express myself more vividly.

Over five-thousand novelists, bloggers, and freelancers have read, shared, and commented on these essays.

From the participants of the 2020 Summit

Style is your bridge to the reader

For many writers, words like "style" and "voice" can be a little mysterious, even anxiety-provoking. After all, don't we all have our own unique style, just by being a unique human being? And if I don't have a "voice," how come I'm already speaking -- and writing? And do you expect me to remember a whole list of grammatical rules?

Additionally, we may also feel like "the story" is the key, not the words we use to tell it. Fix the plot and you'll be fine -- no one who is enjoying your book cares about the third sentence on page 87, right?

Here's a better way to think of style: it's where everything starts. Style is how you put words on the page. And the feel of those words, your voice, is how your reader first makes contact with your characters, your story, your world. 

That's how I see "style": your bridge to your reader. 

How This Event Will Help Your Writing

The goal for this event is to demystify writing style, help you develop an unforgettable voice, build an easy and effective style toolkit, and to offer specific tips on the thorniest aspects of narrative prose, such as dialogue.

You'll finish this summit with new frameworks to write a compelling sentence and a fresh appreciation of the books you love the most.

Style & Voice is 100% free to watch live. You can attend every talk and catch the replays for up to 24 hours after each session airs.
