with Robb Grindstaff
April 13, 2019
(Registration Deadline: Monday, April 8)
Great dialogue is critical. It develops your characters into real, three-dimensional people that readers relate to and engage with. Dialogue should drive your plot – not the other way around. A great story idea with dull, lifeless dialogue falls flat, but even a rehash of a well-worn plot that has crackling dialogue is hard to put down.
In this session, published author and fiction editor, Robb Grindstaff, will discuss real-world methods you can put into immediate practice. Learn tips and techniques to craft dialogue that pulls the reader into the story and characters.
9:30 am – noon
