Write in Passive Voice and be Passed over by a Publisher

09/30/2013 - 10/27/2013

Class Description

In “Write in Passive Voice and Be Passed Over by a Publisher,” you will receive the equivalent of a master’s degree in passive voice, one of the writing errors that spell rejection by agents, editors, and publishers. We will cover what active and passive voices mean, how to form the passive voice, including a verb lesson, and how to form the active from the passive. We will cover the reasons not to use passive voice verbs and the few instances where passive voice is the best choice. By the end of this workshop, you will have everything you need to identify and correct passive voice writing in your writing.
