About the Class

This class is designed to address best practices in writing dialogue. While the focus of the course is on dialogue for novels, it is equally relevant to writers of screenplays and plays.

After watching this course, you should better understand:

  1. How dialogue propels your narrative forward and develops your characters
  2. The best ways to write what characters say
  3. How to write action and dialogue tags that enhance and do not distract from what characters are saying
  4. Common dialogue pitfalls and how to avoid them

This class has something for everyone-beginner to intermediate!

There is a handy Dialogue Checklist attachment in the Class Project section. The checklist should help you follow along and will be a helpful guide when you are doing your writing.

I recommend trying out the class project; the best way to improve your writing is to write!
