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.
