Good, crisp, clean dialogue allows a story or novel to flow smoothly and keep readers engaged. This workshop provides advice on ways to make your dialogue relevant to your plot and interesting to readers, while also fleshing out characterization. Tips on techniques to hide the mechanics of clear attributions and the conventions of dialogue will also be discussed, as well as some practice editing and revising dialogue.
