<b>Intensives</b>

alt=

How much can you learn in one day? Plenty. As you will discover in one of our One-Day Intensives in New York City.

The One-Day Intensives are seven-hour crash courses. You are immersed in a topic through a mixture of brief lectures that hit the high-points and writing exercises that let you immediately try your hand at what you’ve just learned.

The Intensives provide an excellent overview of their fields, ideal for both the beginner and someone wanting a quick refresher course. Arrive in the morning with a desire to learn. By the end of the day, you’ll be a more knowledgeable and skilled writer.

Students come from all over the world for our One-Day Intensives. You’re likely to be sitting near NYC locals as well as people from such far-flung places as Texas, Egypt, and Japan.

Intensives are open for writers of any level.

We offer an online version of an Intensive, a three-week Character course.

We also offers two and four-week seminars, including: How to Get Published, Hit Send: Publishing Short Nonfiction, How to Blog, and Nonfiction Book Proposal.

Students may reschedule a One-Day Intensive one time.

Dialogue Writing
Writing dialogue is not as simple as talking. Though dialogue should sound spontaneous and lifelike, every word your characters speak should resonate with meaning and characterization. It's a crucial balance. Bad dialogue can sink a story like a hole in the hull, while good dialogue can elevate your work to a new level of quality.

In this One-Day, you'll discover dialogue techniques that you can apply to fiction, nonfiction, screenplays, teleplays, or stage plays. Through lectures, script analysis, and exercises, you will learn how to write dialogue that rings true, stays focused, reveals character, creates tension, adds depth through subtext, and more.
