Speak Up, I Can't Hear You: Writing Voice – Kat Brzozowski

 

You've come up with a plot. You've created characters. You have a setting. Now how do you make your readers feel like these characters are really speaking to them? Voice is one of the most important elements of fiction and one of the hardest to master. We'll talk about how other authors craft voice successfully and how you can do it too. Be prepared to write!

Kat Brzozowski is an Editor at Swoon Reads/Feiwel & Friends, where she edits crowdsourced YA manuscripts from SwoonReads.com and acquires books traditionally through Feiwel & Friends. Previously, she was an Editor at Thomas Dunne Books, a division of St. Martin's Press. She has worked on a wide range of young adult fiction, from Anna-Marie McLemore's National Book Award longlister When the Moon Was Ours to new Fear Street books in R.L. Stine’s best‐selling series, which has sold over eighty million copies worldwide. Kat is looking to acquire young adult fiction across a wide range of genres, especially contemporary, realistic YA with a strong hook; dark, contemporary fiction (not too issues-y), mysteries, suspense, and thrillers; and sci-fi and fantasy novels that are mostly rooted in this world. She is especially interested in YA with crossover appeal. When she’s reading YA, she looks for a strong sense of voice, multi-dimensional characters, and realistic dialogue.
