William Haywood Henderson’s workshop:
Your Personal Imprint: Voice and Vision – Katherine Anne Porter said, "You do not create a style. You work, and develop yourself; your style is an emanation from your own being." We all have our own stories to tell, our own way of seeing the world, plus our own way of shaping that world in prose. It can take some work to find the style and themes that are uniquely yours. But if you don't find your own "imprint," you're unlikely to reach your full potential and set yourself off from other writers. In this workshop, we'll look at where you've been, what has happened to you, what you can't forget, and how all of this has shaped your vision. And then we'll dig into the voice that channels your deepest, truest self. You'll be challenged to face your obsessions; as Akira Kurosawa said, "To be an artist means never to avert your eyes."
