OKC Christian Fiction Writers will host author Robin Patchen on Saturday, June 15, from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Ms. Patchen will lead a hands-on workshop titled The Mystery of Voice.
Editors and agents agree that the strength of an author’s voice can make the difference between a contract and a dusty, unread manuscript. But what is voice, and how do authors develop a unique voice amid all the writing rules they’re supposed to follow? In this interactive workshop, Patchen will unravel the mystery and help authors to begin the process of discovering their own, God-given voices.
Robin Patchen’s first novel, One Christmas Eve, was released in November with Harbourlight Books. Patchen is a member of ACFW and its Oklahoma City chapter. She was a semi-finalist in ACFW’s 2011 Genesis Award. She earned a degree in Journalism from Northeastern University in Boston and currently lives with her husband, Edward, and their three children in Edmond, Oklahoma.
