The Dialogue Challenge

Writing dialogue well and effectively is arguably the single hardest task facing the novelist and yet it’s consistently taken for granted. Patrick Gale will help you analyse both where the challenges lie and what your own insecurities about dialogue may be. Using an extended writing exercise, based on a passage you’ll write for yourself, he’ll help demystify dialogue and ensure that you treat it with new respect!

Advance work: For my dialogue workshop I need everyone to write a couple of pages of unmediated dialogue – like the transcript of a recording- no scene setting, no he said she said, no internal thoughts: simply the words coming from the character’s mouths. It might help if they bring two printouts of this as they’ll be scribbling all over it.
