Brenda Baker

This workshop is packed with writing exercises and tips to help participating writers make better use of dialogue in their short stories and novels. Great dialogue can do many things for a story, including helping to develop character, creating mood, moving the story along, and occasionally adding humour. On the other hand, badly written dialogue can drag a story down and irritate the reader. Brenda Baker will present examples of dialogue gone bad and dialogue that sparkles, “performing” portions of text to illustrate the differences.
