Dialogue makes or breaks your fiction and memoir. Although some writers have a natural ear for writing authentic-sounding dialogue, most have to learn the technique: how to translate spoken dialogue (real life) to the page, bring in enough subtext to create tension, find voice and rhythm, and carefully employ tags and interruptions and stage directions.
In this afternoon intensive, we'll analyze amazing dialogue by famous writers, then craft or refine our own using a variety of fun techniques. Dialogue isn't easy, but once you learn the rules, develop your ear, and attune to dialogue's rhythms, you can write amazing, authentic dialogue for your fiction or memoir.
