Setting Your Voice Free Writing Workshop

Join us for this six-week workshop for active and aspiring writers with author Linda Cardillo.

Wednesday, October 3rd
10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Upstairs Screening Room


Your writer’s voice is as distinctive as your fingerprint or the pattern of your iris. It is an expression of “you” in a deeply personal and visceral way. But as writers we often flounder trying to achieve a distinctive voice.

Rather than seeking to capture your voice, come discover how to set it free.
Explore the roles perception, memory and emotional honesty play in developing and refining your unique voice as a writer.
