The art of crafting good dialogue is an ancient one, stretching back to the Greeks and beyond. It is the life-blood of any story--whether in a play, novel or film--and mastering it is essential if you live by the rule--as I do--of "showing, not telling." In this class we will focus on using dialogue as a way to reveal character and advance action, and we will do so through a close reading of great writers as well as writing exercises.
