The Artistry of Writing: Daring Dialogue


What does it take to write a story that jumps off the page and comes alive in a reader's mind? Great authors have mastered the Artistry of Writing. This two-hour workshop will focus on one facet of excellent storytelling: daring dialogue.

Banter. Arguments. Secret-sharing. More than simply what a character says, well-crafted dialogue adds depth to a scene. It brings characters to life and plays a large part in the writer's adage, "Show, don't tell." Successful dialogue sounds natural, whether breaking hearts, inspiring friends, or sneaking skeletons out of a closet. The class will analyze dialogue and identify why it works. We will craft conversations as a group and then draft dialogue independently. There will be an opportunity to share and receive feedback.

This session is part of a series of writers' workshops led by a celebrated author and focused on the Artistry of Writing. Topics in this series include: Compelling Characters (3/5/23); Daring Dialogue (3/19/24); Astounding Action Scenes (4/9/24) and Suspenseful & Scary Scenes (4/23/24).
