Why does Style matter?

If you write stories, your readers first encounter your style. Before anyone notices your plot or cares about your characters, they have already formed an opinion about your voice, your way of sounding on the page. 

Your writing style might be plain or ornate, or might change depending on your project, but the clearer and more vivid that style can become, the more memorable your writing will be.

I'm Daniel, the host of this annual event. I love talking about writing style and teaching it, and I wanted to share with you the insights of the best teachers I could find.

Style and Voice is a dedicated, focused learning experience to help you level up your writing and develop an unforgettable writing voice. The summit gathers together writers and teachers with an expert grasp on writing style, point of view, character creation, authorial voice, and artistic confidence. They want to teach you!

You'll finish this summit with new frameworks to write a compelling sentence and a fresh appreciation of the books you love the most.

Three Ways to Get a Ticket

There are three ways to register for the event. 

The free ticket allows you to watch live (you'll be able to watch all three days of the summit live and for 24 hours after each talk posts). 

The paid Style Pass gives you on-going, replay access to all the main event sessions, as well as, after the summit ends, transcripts of the sessions and audio versions of the talks. 

The add-on purchase of a seat at the workshop day enables you to participate in the optional fourth day of the event, on April 5th. Here, community leaders from this and past summits will lead interactive workshop sessions to help you reflect on, review, and put to work the techniques from the main event. It's the best way to experience the summit.

You can upgrade your ticket at any time, but we are currently still on early bird pricing, so you should get your pass today before the price goes up.

I've read dozens of books on writing style.
