Dialogue writing class
A workshop tailored to people who have trouble writing dialogue
Teresa Link is teaching a class on writing dialogue, a challenge that many writers encounter when creating short stories or working on novels. The one-day workshop will be held on Saturday, November 17, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. at San Diego Writers, Ink (710 13th St). I contacted fellow writer Teresa Link to ask about her class.
RT: How will Writing Good Dialogue help beginning and more seasoned writers?
TL: Whether you bring in a work-in-progress or are starting something new, this class will galvanize your scenes and bring you closer to the bone of your characters.
RT: What is the best thing for writers to do in order to hone their skills?
TL: New writers: Write! Journals, letters, scenes, descriptions. Just write. And Read!
RT: What is your expertise and why did you decide to teach this class?
TL: I was extensively trained and worked as an actor for many years, which is why I'm so attuned to dialogue. In my workshops I love to see how the work breaks free as a result of the exercises we do. Plus, everyone has fun.
The cost of this class is $75-90 and registration can be completed online.
