The setting down of words spring from each individual in a blend of imagination, experience, interest, philosophy and state of mind. Each writer is special in what he or she has to say and how he or she says it. This is called writing style. Style is unique to each writer and is developed nearly every day in any way open to you.
It's not necessary that you have a lot of formal education, but you do need to learn and observe the rules of fiction and give yourself plenty of opportunities to polish your craft. The techniques for building memorable characters you will learn in this workshop will give you a solid foundation for writing any compelling tale you want to imagine.
