From The Writers Place: Why does some dialogue fall flat on the page when other dialogue sings? The answer is not always straightforward; sometimes verbatim real-life dialogue can sound stilted once it’s written, and highly stylized dialogue can ring true. In this workshop, we will explore the different kinds of work dialogue can do for a piece of fiction, and how often subtext and subterfuge can be more revealing than earnest declarations. Bring 2-3 page samples of dialogue (screenwriters also welcome) and your acting chops: all dialogue will be read aloud!
