Masterclass in writing style and voice – Ep13 FREE podcast for writers
Posted by Roz Morris @Roz_Morris in How to write a book on April 2, 2020

How can writers learn style from other authors… without sounding like a copy or pastiche? How do you find your true voice, your unique voice?

Today I’m at Multi-Story.co.uk, exploring what makes an effective prose style – and the knots we can get ourselves into as we try to develop it. Do come over.
