One-Day Master Class: The Art of Dialogue
In this one-session workshop, we'll talk (and talk and talk) about dialogue. What are the qualities of good dialogue and how can we, as writers, create conversation on the page that moves a story forward but still seems “real”? We will read and discuss examples of published stories with notably good dialogue, and we will do in-class writing exercises.
