Event description
Putting Words into Their Mouths: a workshop on the art of dialogue in fiction writing

About this event

How do you create speech that feels alive and authentic on the page? This workshop will cover the fundamentals of writing dialogue in novels and short stories, by way of a couple of example extracts, discussion, and a light-touch writing exercise intended to unlock the potential of your dialogue writing.

Also, a (not obligatory) pre-workshop instruction, if you have the time: to record (on an audio device such as a phone) one minute of real, heard conversation. Make sure to get the permission of the speakers. Then, transcribe the conversation onto paper – writing it down word for word, grunt for grunt...and bring the transcript along with you to the session.
