May 5-June 2

Craft Class: Dialogue
Instructor: Katrina Kittle
Writing dialogue is one of those tricky "make or break" elements of fiction--bad dialogue can sink an otherwise promising story, and good dialogue can make a mediocre story fly. Through informal and friendly class lectures, exercises, and plenty of published examples, this five week course will help you  write dialogue that gives the illusion of real speech but stays focused, reveals character, adds tension, and adds depth through subtext. We'll also tackle dialogue punctuation, writing in dialect, handling monologues, and more. (Note: this class is applicable to any kind of writing that contains dialogue, including memoir and nonfiction).
Class will be held at the conference room of Oakwood Starbucks, 2424 Far Hills Avenue, 45419


Manuscript Evaluations 
Katrina Kittle will evaluate novel drafts and provide in-depth, detailed feedback throughout the novel, as well as a lengthy summary at the end of what is working/what are the manuscript's strengths and suggestions for revision. Fee varies based on length of the project.
