There are still spaces available in this coming Saturday’s seminar “Say What? Writing Better Dialogue by Thinking Dramatically” with playwright Enrique Urueta. This seminar is for fiction writers, creative nonfiction writers, playwrights, screenwriters, anybody whose dialogue could use improvement. Whether you write fiction or drama, your ability to capture a reader’s attention and drive your story forward depends heavily on dialogue. But what makes good dialogue? How does dialogue drive a narrative? And how will thinking dramatically improve your writing? We’ll discuss what makes good dialogue work and practice a variety of exercises that will hone your ability to craft believable and effective dialogue. 9am-1pm, $55 members, $60 non-members. Register online or come by during open hours. See our website for details:
And the seminar will be followed at 2pm by a FREE discussion with Enrique Urueta:
