Come to class ready to talk, talk, talk! We will explore what makes dialogue “effective” via verbal storytelling and in-class writing exercises. We’ll also look at published examples and discuss the different types of dialogue employed in fiction?from chit-chat to monologue, idiom to dialect?and we’ll learn tricks for training our ears and making our dialogue believable, compelling, and vital.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
