Understanding & Effectively Using Tone in Your Writing 
Writers of both fiction and nonfiction use tone in their work to portray a variety of emotions ranging from solemn, grave, and critical to witty, wry and humorous. Tone helps the reader ascertain the writer’s feelings toward a particular topic which then, influences the reader’s understanding of the story. How the reader feels about it, is often referred to as the mood. In this 2-hour class, through instruction and analysis of writing samples, author JC Lynne will show writers the difference between tone and mood and how to effectively incorporate them in their writing.
