10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
World’s Biggest Bookstore, in the 2nd floor community room, 20 Edward St, Toronto (A block north of Dundas St., just west of Yonge St. Map 

Accessible to beginners and meaty enough for experienced writers, this workshop will show you how to use dialogue to make your stories more dynamic and dramatic.  Whether you’re writing fiction or memoir, you need to be able to write great dialogue and need to know how to mix your dialogue and narrative so that your characters come alive.  Come to this workshop and learn both the basics and the best tricks of the trade so that you'll never write a lifeless scene again.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. But his proudest boast is that he’s has helped many of his students get published

Guest speaker Sharon A. Crawford was a journalist for many years. She still writes about murder, kidnapping, sexual abuse, gambling, revenge, and vehicular mishaps, but now it’s fiction. She is also a freelance book editor and writing instructor and is Writer in Residence for the Canadian Authors Association Toronto Branch. 

Sharon A. is currently working on a prequel novel featuring fraternal twin and private investigators Dana Bowman and Bast Overture, who appeared in her debut short story collection Beyond the Tripping Point (Blue Denim Press, 2012). Check out Sharon A’s website and her blog 

In the workshop, Sharon A. will use excerpts from her short story collection, Beyond the Tripping Point, to show how to create memorable characters through dialogue and how to combine dialogue, with action and with your character’s thoughts to build a powerful story.
