You Said It! Master the Two Most Important Functions of Great Dialogue

Writing great dialogue is the fastest, most powerful way to improve your manuscript. Even if other areas of your manuscript are still rough, great dialogue indicates that you’ve got what it takes to write a terrific book, and agents and publishers are more apt to take a chance on you. In this hands-on craft session, you’ll develop a deep understanding of what dialogue is (and what it isn’t) and get a rock-solid handle on the two most important functions of dialogue: to reveal character and advance story. Best for beginning fiction writers or those who struggle to write great dialogue.
