How to make your dialogue sing 

Got a strong desire to write or to improve your creative writing? This is for you.

In this 90 minute workshop, you’ll consider the elements of good dialogue and how to turn yours into an engine-house for better fiction.

Lead by award-winning author, Joy Rhoades, you’ll look at examples of good dialogue and discuss how you might craft the same in your own writing. 

You’ll have a chance to apply newfound principles to you own writing via multiple exercises throughout the workshop. You’ll also have the chance to read some of that work aloud, if you wish to, in a supportive environment.

Bring along a short piece of your own writing if you’d like to work on that in the context of the class. Joy will also cover the essentials of a writing life, sharing practical tips to get you writing and reading regularly. 

Places are strictly limited, so you’re advised to book early.
