Can We Talk? Crafting Great Dialogue (New!)

Instructor(s): Brian Wood
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.

Good dialogue. It’s what readers want most and what writers rarely give. In this course we will face our fears and make our characters speak. First we will develop three tools to apply toward crafting effective speech: sound, tags, and weight. With an understanding of these tools students will be provided dialogue exercises. The following sessions we will workshop and critique the exercises and really make our dialogue sing.
