HE SAID, SHE SAID: SCENE BUILDING THROUGH COMPELLING DIALOGUE

9-10:15 AM—Writer’s Craft Session

HE SAID, SHE SAID: SCENE BUILDING THROUGH COMPELLING DIALOGUE
As a great dramatist and short story writer, Tennessee Williams understood the power of the spoken word to reveal character, underscore theme, and heighten conflict. Join the New Orleans Writers Workshop for this Williams-inspired session designed to get your characters talking. Drawing from William’s example, we’ll first explore the finer points of creating effective dialogue and exploiting its dramatic potential, followed by a guided scene-building exercise centered on dialogue. Participants can expect to leave with a compelling, lifelike exchange between two or more characters and a better understanding of how to make dialogue meaningful to the work as a whole. Writers of all levels welcome! Led by authors Allison Alsup, Tom Andes, and Jessica Kinnison from the New Orleans Writer’s Workshop. Historic New Orleans Collection, $25, VIP Pass, or Combo Pass
