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 until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.
Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
