This is what a script reader SHOULD experience...
If there’s one thing we heard over and over at the last Screenwriters Festival it was agents, producers, showrunners and execs saying they were looking for ‘unique and distinct voices…’
So even with a solid pitch, an enthusiastic script request, an obvious love for your concept, the end result could still be a desultory PASS from the reader.
Why? ‘We are looking for a more unique and authentic voice’.
In this workshop we will show you how to better understand what your unique and authentic voice could be, share tools to reveal it, and then zero in on how to add it to your work.
In this workshop you will…
- Understand how to identify your foundational ‘voice’ by zooming out on your stories and passions.
- Once isolated, we will go micro and into the nitty gritty of words on the page, dialogue, scene descriptions and apply that ‘voice’.
- Create entirely new scenes from your stories written from your ‘authentic voice’.
- Understand what and why YOUR voice is unique and WHY it makes everything you write jump off the page.
- Embrace writing with greater fearlessness as writing from an ‘authentic voice’ requires courage.
If you want to switch out some words to ‘find-your-voic’e, go ahead and use a thesaurus. No doubt it will improve your writing.
But that isn’t this course.
This workshop will challenge you to become a better writer in just one day, and you will leave with new tools, insight into what makes your writing sizzle and a swagger to tell it you way. To tell your story in your voice. Your Unique and Distinct Voice…
