Creating Effective Dialogue


Dialogue will either drive your story forward—or stop it dead in its tracks. Learn how to find your story’s voice, how to adapt dialogue to the genre you write in, look for effective and non-effective dialogue, the mechanics of dialogue, creating conflict through dialogue, the seven deadly sins of bad dialogue, and how to use speech tags effectively.

Class will include:

  • Coursework: audio/visual and written lecture materials

  • Reading assignments

  • Weekly writing assignments with critique/feedback

This is a four-week online class and a one-day onsite workshop. Students can engage anytime. At the beginning of the course you will receive a syllabus, list of required and suggested readings, and course schedule. You are encouraged to email the instructor with any questions you may have at any time before, during, or after the course.
