This weekend: Writing Conflict; and Secrets of Writing a Page-turner

Writing Conflict: Fight scenes, Dialogue scenes & Love scenes
Saturday, November 30, 2019
1 – 4 p.m.
London Central Library, Stevenson & Hunt Room B, 251 Dundas St, London, Ontario (Map here).
This workshop is geared to both beginners and more experienced writers. We'll look at how to create the most difficult scenes of all: the fight scene, the dialogue scene, and the love scene.  You’ll learn how to use great dialogue and how to mix it with your narrative so that the interaction between your characters comes alive, and you'll go home with some of the best tricks of the trade so that you'll never write a lifeless scene again.
Fee: $37.17 + hst = $42 paid in advance or $39.82 + hst = $45 if you wait to pay at the door
