No matter what you're writing, great dialogue will make your project stand out. Bad dialogue will make it stick out like a sore thumb! In this webinar, we'll cover how to avoid common mistakes that keep dialogue from flowing smoothly. This guidance applies to fiction, non-fiction, picture books--any writing that involves dialogue! Examples of what we'll be covering include: 

  • How to spot when characters are telling each other information they should already know 
  • How to use paragraph spacing for pacing and clarity 
  • How to know when to use dialogue tags and what kind of dialogue tags to use

Come away from this webinar feeling more confident and secure in your ability to write realistic, compelling dialogue.
