Writing Workshop with Laura Sutherland

  • Scout Story Lab 1104 Northwest 15th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

Think about it: our voice is one of the most unique things about us — when we’re speaking. But when it comes to the written word, it’s a totally different game ... especially after years of schooling around the “correct” way to write. In this workshop, Laura will demystify what it means to find your writing voice, uncover the difference between voice and tone, illuminate some common traps that prevent you from letting your little light shining through on the page, and break down the robotic formality that often trips us up. So if you’re interested in sounding way more authentic and true to yourself in any form of written word — emails, blogs, social media, your grocery list, whatevs — this workshop is for you. Oh, also: got a favorite pen? Bring it, because we’ll be doing some freestyling (a.k.a. on-the- fly writing exercises). Notebooks will be supplied.
