My friend Shelley Souza is offering a free webinar on voice. Join her April 2, 2017 at 1 pm EST at http://awritersvoice.com/ 

She recently taught a class and says this:

From my writers I learned that they longed to be inspired by their voices again. They taught me that writers are looking for validation of their voice, without throwing out the necessity of craft.  Does this sound like you?

— Were you once thrilled to write your story but no longer feel connected to your voice?

— Do you feel faraway from the original vision you had for your story, and why you wanted to write it?

— Are you exhausted from the effort of trying to nail every craft point and push every plot twist to make your work fit the market?

Read the rest at http://awritersvoice.com/

I hope some of you can attend because I won't be able to (we have a meeting planned at school).
Thanks, Vijaya

Great. Shelley has a wonderful voice herself. I love that it comes out in her course description.
