WRITING UNDER THE INFLUENCE
"Nobody Talks Like That"
1 SESSION: SEPTEMBER 25
From the instructor: "Writing dialogue that doesn't sound like you using your characters as sock puppets can be a challenge. Writing dialogue that is funny, compelling, and/or memorable is already tricky enough; writing dialogue that actually sounds like somebody else is even harder. Drawing from examples in prose, poetry, theater, radio, and cinema, this workshop will examine what makes for compelling dialogue and how you can apply certain principles in your writing to give your characters distinct voices. Using a mix of craft talk and hands-on exercises, participants (be they first-time writers or seasoned scribes) will walk away from this workshop with new pages of work and new techniques to add to their writing toolkit."
