How to find your author voice – interview with Joanna Penn

If you’re a writer (and, if not, tell you writer friends { and, if no writer friends, please befriend one :-) — this re-blog on Voice has a video with Roz Morris being interviewed!

The video might have an AD at the beginning; but, you should be able to kill it in a matter of seconds :-)

Nail Your Novel

author voiceHello! I’m slightly late posting this week because I knew I had this waiting. Joanna Penn invited me back to her podcast to thrash out a thorny topic – how to find your author voice.

We discuss what voice is, how to develop it, how character dialogue differs from narrative voice, how authors might adapt their style for different kinds of book, voice considerations for non-fiction, the value of experimenting and – that perennial favourite – why literary fiction might take so darn long to write. Plus side helpings of Nigella Lawson and Nigel Slater, so bring a picnic.

You can get it on video, audio download or written transcript – it’s all here.

    As always, Roz, couldn’t have done it unless you posted the original :-)
