Learn what makes dialogue effective and craft powerful examples of your own.

W. H. Horner, a faculty mentor with Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction MFA program, will work through fundamental aspects of writing fiction. Attendance is limited. Handouts and worksheets will be provided. Attendees should bring a three-ring notebook and paper. Dialogue is one of the best ways to move the plot forward while bringing characters to life. If it crackles with energy and instantly commands attention, good dialogue will stick with readers after they have put down the book or short story. While it’s easy to recognize, it’s not easy to create. W. H. Horner walks attendees through issues and techniques related to dialogue by analyzing some of the best examples in prose, film, and stage writing. Attendees will have a chance to craft dialogue of their own, trying out techniques and sharing with the group.
