SONOMA WRITERS CAMP. OCTOBER 26, 2022
MASTER CLASS WITH ELMAZ ABINADER: THE POWER OF VOICE
Voice is the writer’s fingerprint, a unique combination of inheritance, culture, language, experiences and identity. Voice also is the primary encounter between the writer and the reader/ listener. Often our voice is colonized by institutions and educations and gets lost in requirements, expectations, and decorum. The authentic voice of our characters, our speakers and ourselves are buried in a world of performance. In this master class, this community of writers work to liberate our individual voices to truly speak/tell/present our stories/poems/pieces. Specific exercises allow us to unearth our voices, while exchanging with one another to create an exciting writers’ dialogue. We will produce pieces where our voices, interior and exterior, come to life.
