Find Your Voice As A Writer

Find your purpose in writing and explore the endless possibilities you have to tell your story and express yourself with The Write Voice workshop that takes place at The Writing Studio in Cape Town Saturday, February 28 and March 7, 14 and 28 from 2pm until 5pm.

The Write Voice inspires storytellers to get in touch with who they are and is ideal for anyone who needs a jump start and take that step forward in writing creatively.

If you find it difficult to start writing, not sure what medium to write for, or what to write, this motivational and inspirational introspective odyssey will empower you with the write skills.

The Write Voice explores the writing process and deconstructs writing fiction, non-fiction and journalism.

It is ideal for first-time writers who would like to define their writing skills, and also recommended for seasoned writers who are trapped in the web of re-writes and unfinished projects, or lost in the maze of the daunting writing process.

During the workshop you will have the opportunity to write a short story and get positive feedback through practical and motivational exercises.

Graduates of previous workshops include   award-winning novelists Lauren Beukes (Zoo City, The Shining Girl) Gary Hirson (The Magic That is Ours and Calm in Storm) and Consuelo Roland (who received acclaim for her Lady Limbo Novel, and was Shortlisted for the Sunday Times Fiction Award and received an Honorary mention for the Olive Schreiner Prize for her novel The Good Cemetery Guide).

The interactive workshop is presented by Daniel Dercksen, the driving force behind the successful independent training initiative The Writing Studio. A published film and theatre journalist for 30 years, and playwright, Dercksen has been teaching workshops in creative writing, playwriting and screenwriting throughout South Africa the past 19 years and received the number one spot for most popular lifestyle contributor for 2012 and 2014 on Biz Community.

Due to the interactive and intimate nature of the workshop, it can only accommodate 5 writers.
