2021 Virtual Workshop:
Dialogue in Travel Writing and other Non-Fiction
The use of direct speech is the yeast of non-fiction. Using handouts to illustrate what works (and what doesn’t), the workshop explores the best ways to use dialogue in travel writing and biography, covering key questions such as: How much? Is it ok to make it up? How can one create an authentic voice? Where should the dialogue go? Delegates are welcome to bring examples of their own.
