How to Write Great Dialogue ~ Especially for young adult books
Saturday, October 1, 2016
1:00 – 4:30 p.m.
Forest Heights Public Library, 251 Fischer-Hallman Road, Kitchener, Ontario (Map here)
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 that both sounds natural and packs dramatic punch, and you need to know how to mix your dialogue and narrative so that your characters come alive. We’ll also take a particular look at the special needs of writing dialogue for the middle-grade and young adult markets. Come to this workshop and learn both the basics and the best tricks of the trade.
Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He publishes Quick Brown Fox, Canada’s most popular blog for writers, teaches creative writing at Ryerson University and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Charlottetown. But his proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get published.
