Guest writer: Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott
A strong voice gives prose a recognisable quality that casts a lasting impression on the reader. Mood and emotion are created through the command of voice and tone, while hints of gossip or slander can add vibrancy and colour to the fiction writer’s palette. Our guest tonight Kelleigh Greenberg-Jephcott uses these techniques to great effect in her novel, Swan Song, the story of Truman Capote and the betrayal of his High Society ‘swans’, published to much acclaim in 2018 and recently long-listed for the 2019 Women’s Prize for Fiction. A screenwriter as well as a novelist, Kelleigh will be joining us to discuss ways to use voice to develop character and story.
