This workshop will give you the opportunity to explore what dialogue can do and when to use it, and surprise yourself by using it to bring new aspects of your text to life. Dialogue should never merely be two characters talking! Speech, in your book, should be an opportunity to show your character motivations, push the plot forward, generate humour, and create action and tension, among a host of other effects.
The workshop shows you where to focus and helps you to answer the questions:
- How can I use my characters’ dialogue to best effect?
- How do I use dialogue to move the story forward?
