Berkeley (Zoom): Writing Dialogue that Sings

January 16, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Say What? Writing Dialogue that Sings! with Jane K. Cleland

Get Tickets

Dialogue is one of three narrative tools to move the plot along and reveal character (in addition to description and action). Each character must speak with a unique voice—an amalgam of style, tone, intonation, and word choices. (And it must be formatted and punctuated properly). This Sunday, Jane K. Cleland will show you what you need to write dialogue that rings with truth.
