Masters at writing dialogue can create magical, unique voices across dozens of characters, each distinct, memorable, and alive. Through readings, discussions, and writing exercises, we’ll explore how voice differs from dialogue; how to use rhythm, diction, and style to develop distinct voices; and how the words characters speak reveal emotions, psychology, and desires.
