About this title:

Synopsis: Find your voice–and make your writing sing!

&break;&break;You know a great literary "voice" when you hear it: David Sedaris' humorous cynicism. Elmore Leonard's weary, smart-mouthed dialogue. Nick Hornby's simple yet imaginative descriptions. It's the kind of writing you should aspire to, right?

&break;&break;Well...not quite. Each of these authors found success in part by developing their own unique voice: a writing style that helped define - and throw the spotlight on - their work.

&break;&break;Now Les Edgerton shows you how to develop a voice of your own, one that rises above the literary din because of its individuality, not in spite of it!

&break;&break;Inside, he provides guidelines, advice and dozens of exercises for recognizing and developing a natural style that will make your characters, stories and dialogue better and more memorable. You'll learn:

    &break;&break;
  • How to make any piece you write unmistakably yours and yours alone&break;
  • What agents and editors really think about using your own voice&break;
  • How to write better by ignoring the rules&break;
  • The keys to getting your voice and personality on the page&break;
  • How to get back the unique voice you may have lost by trying to write like someone else
&break;&break;Whether you write fiction, non-fiction or poetry, Finding Your Voice is a must for your personal library. Let's face it - editors, agents and readers all want to read something fresh and new. By finding your voice, you'll be giving them exactly what they want!
