Proposed Workshop Title
HE SAID WHAT? – Writing Double-Duty Dialogue
“Why do we need to learn to write dialogue?” she asked questioningly. “I don’t know!” he shouted in a loud voice. “Take the class and find out,” he added, saying more.
Dialogue in fiction is more than just words on a page. It’s part characterization, part plotting, part pacing, and part voice—both the character’s and yours! Learn from award-winning, multi-published author Linnea Sinclair how to expertly craft the words that should be coming out of your characters’ mouths… and how to avoid unnecessary overwriting pitfalls in this fun and, yes, talkative class.
