Try This: Voice Workshop

janav Try This, Writing Leave a Comment

I’ve been following Brenda Drake’s blog, which recently has featured Voice Workshops with Pitch Wars mentors. If you’re unfamiliar with her, she runs the #pitchmad Twitter pitch contests and Pitch Wars, where agents and editors mentor promising writers. If you haven’t checked out her site, I highly recommend it: http://www.brenda-drake.com/

The Voice workshops (currently the most recent entries on her blog) are professional critiques of writers’ first pages, and are very instructive of what an agent or editor looks for. Read the series, and then look at the first page of your own manuscript. What do you see that could be changed to make it stronger?
