“Think of what you skip reading a novel: thick paragraphs of prose you can see have too many words in them…I’ll bet you don’t skip dialogue.”
—Elmore Leonard
Perhaps because it’s so important, many writers find dialogue the most intimidating part of writing. Not any more. In “Making People Talk” we’ll learn and practice techniques to make your dialogue sing. We’ll examine the tools and tricks modern masters use to craft exceptional dialogue. With the help of in-class exercises and focused revision techniques, you can expect to come away with the skills and confidence needed to write dialogue that sizzles. You don’t want to skip this!
