Talking About How Your Characters Talk
What your characters say and how they say it can be as essentially distinguishing as what they wear or who they love. But convincing, character-fueled dialogue that doesn't go the way of exposition is harder to write than it looks. In this hands-on writing workshop, we'll watch how the masters do it by dissecting a few dialogue scenes plucked from multiple genres, and then we'll practice mastering a few scenes ourselves. Writers of all genres and level of expertise are welcome!
