Winner! 5-Sentence Scary Story (with Snow)

posted by Jason Boyett

Michael Emerson and the Power of Voice

A couple weeks back, with our 5-Sentence Scary Story Contest, we indirectly explored the power of voice when it comes to writing. As a writer, “voice” is important. I use it all the time, whether it’s in writing my Pocket […]
