Tutor: Alan McMunnigall

Dialogue Day School in the St Andrews Building at Glasgow University.

Centre for Open Studies
University of Glasgow
St Andrew’s Building
11 Eldon Street
Glasgow G3 6NH

The Day School costs £30 and is for those who want to learn more about how dialogue in fiction works and how to write better dialogue.

The following questions will be addressed: How is successful dialogue created? What techniques do writers use to create dialogue? Why is some dialogue flat and unconvincing? How is character developed through dialogue? What methods do writers employ to capture ‘realistic speech’?

On Saturday examples from published works will be used to show how authors create effective dialogue and create character through dialogue. We’ll discuss issues such as movement, omission, implicit and explicit speech, as well as approaches to creating dialogue featuring multiple speakers. Ultimately those attending will leave with a greater understanding of dialogue as readers and writers.
