Event Description

Fun, informal classes--with coffee and chocolate!

Join local novelist Katrina Kittle for two hours on one of the trickiest elements of writing—bad dialogue can sink an otherwise promising story, and good dialogue can make a mediocre story fly. This crash course will refresh your knowledge of dialogue punctuation and will lead you through 10 important tips to strengthen your dialogue. We’ll look at dialogue attribution, creating the illusion of real speech, subtext, and the three biggest dialogue “traps” to avoid. (Note: this class is applicable to any kind of writing that contains dialogue, including memoir and nonfiction). For more information about Katrina go to www.katrinakittle.com
