Dialogue is one of the crucial tools a writer can develop as well as one of the most essential components of a book—after all, most commercial fiction is at least 50% dialogue! This workshop helps writers understand how best to maximize the function and form of dialogue. We'll look at naturalism vs heightened language, exposition vs. subtext, and how to find each of your character's unique voice.
