Conversation to Dialogue
This workshop encourages the use of dialogue, not only in dramatic works, but creative nonfiction, fiction, poetry, graphic novel and hybrid forms.
We will discuss the uses of dialogue, consider excellent examples, and write a three-part exercise to create a short bit of dialogue for a work in progress, or for a new piece.
The aims of the workshop are to understand what dialogue can do, produce a short original dialogue, and understand how to distill conversation to dialogue.
This workshop is open to writers of all abilities and in all forms; there is no preparation necessary.
