Writing: Dialogue – Hearing the Character’s Voice

Posted by & filed under .

Writing dialogue can be one of the most challenging efforts for any writer.  Are you capturing dialect?  Is the dialogue authentic?  Does it flow?  How do I punctuate dialogue?

Spend a few hours listening to the characters you have created in story and sharing them with fellow classmates.  We will explore memoir, plays, short stories and novels to learn how other writers have effectively used dialogue to set the pace, scene or drama of their work.
