Dialogue and Scene Workshop

Effective dialogue can ignite a work of fiction or creative nonfiction, just as poorly-written dialogue can dampen it. We want our characters to sound authentic, and yet somehow strong dialogue transcends authenticity—it’s more real than real. In this workshop, we’ll unravel this paradox by examining and practicing strategies for writing effective dialogue and scene so as to amp up the level of immediacy in your work.
