Writing Workshop: Dialogue
A Crash Course on Writing Dialogue with Ian Finley
One Afternoon Session!
Dialogue is the engine of all drama, but it can be a finicky subject. This one-day workshop will explore the different styles of dialogue a writer may choose to use on stage, and the unique keys for each of them.
Time, Date, and Location TBA
