How can we use dialogue to create complex and compelling characters?
What kind of dialogue engages readers and offers insights into a character's unique worldview,
personality, experiences, and background?

In this workshop, you'll learn some do's and don'ts about creating compelling dialogue.
You'll try your hand at some playful writing exercises,
with the option to share and receive feedback on the texts you create.
We'll also discuss a few sample dialogues that you'll read ahead of the workshop.

You'll leave the workshop with a deeper understanding of how dialogue helps create complex and compelling characters,
and with greater confidence in your ability to use dialogue effectively.

"I loved the workshop! The choice of texts was amazing. Lisa is always able to find extracts that make me reflect and think about details I hadn't thought about before. And I find her observations always so personal and out-of-the-box, making us see things from a new prospective."
