Dynamics of Dialogue, with Jacqueline Sheehan

We all have conversations every single day: so why is writing dynamic dialogue for our characters so incredibly hard?  Maybe because dynamic dialogue accomplishes at least four things at once: it advances the story, reveals your characters’ hearts, minds and backstories, intensifies the conflict to keep readers riveted, and infers a layer of unspoken meaning, or subtext. But how do we create dialogue that does all this while still sounding believable?  In this half day workshop, bestselling novelist Jacqueline Sheehan will guide writers in mastering essential tools for writing authentic-sounding speech that will fire up your narratives!  Come ready to experiment and have fun! 

Saturday, Jan 28th, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EST ($75)
