Casual Conversation [Becky Mandelbaum]
Class Update: Becky Mandelbaum will now be teaching this class. This has been updated from the print catalog.
All Levels | We say several thousand words a day to one another, yet writing dialogue is tricky. It must remain true to how we speak but not too much so. It must move plot and character without appearing to. And, like the best dances, good dialogue is a game, sometimes friendly, others not, that propels characters through stories. You may bring previous work to discuss, or we’ll create something new based on dexterous dialogue by great writers.
