In Voice Triumphant we examine and practice the illusion of the spoken word in poetry, fiction and non-fiction prose. Monologue is an illusion. So is dialogue, for that matter. In both, a writer deploys language to create the illusion of a mind expressing—or struggling to express—or struggling to hide—ideas and feelings. We say about many poems and stories that there is a “speaker”; however, the speaker, too, is a literary creation. Voices are writer-created and inspired. In what voice (or voices) would you like to write? How might you develop such an illusion?
