Join One Story contributing editor and bestselling author Will Allison for this three-day online class designed for writers of all skill levels who want to sharpen their dialogue skills and to deepen their understanding of the role of dialogue in fiction.
This class will help you answer questions such as: How can I tell if my dialogue is effective? How can I write better dialogue? When should I use dialogue? How much dialogue should I use?
Daily lessons will include techniques, tips, examples, and exercises to keep you focused and on track. You’ll also have the opportunity to become part of an active writing community on our discussion board, where you can share ideas with your fellow writers and with Will.
