New Bedford Blubber Writers Workshop

Voice and Tone in Fiction

Maggie Felisberto

Maggie Felisberto is a queer nail polish enthusiast with a PhD in Portuguese literature and an MFA in creative writing. Her work has been published by Bridge Eight Press, Change Seven Magazine, Tagus Press and Routledge, and is forthcoming from Bare Hill Review and Nat 1 Publishing. Originally from Pennsylvania, she lives in Massachusetts with her sister and nine pets.

In this workshop, we will discuss voice and tone in the written word, and how we can shape them to convey our stories more effectively. Voice and tone, though similar, are not interchangeable, and one of the goals of this workshop is to be able to distinguish between the two in order to employ them in our writing. By getting a better grasp of these two tools, participants should be able to develop their own authentic writing style.
