Memoir Techniques: Writing Great Dialogue

In this class, we'll read examples from various memoirs, and study different techniques for writing dialogue and what to do when we can't remember conversations word for word. We'll discuss the purpose of dialogue, when and when not to use it, and spend time writing and revising conversations from our own works in progress.
