How do you write great dialogue? How can you communicate information about our characters without writing ‘on the nose’? What should be left unsaid…
Kimberley Andrews leads this intensive two-hour workshop designed to sharpen your dialogue skills! This fun, interactive session consists of practical exercises which will allow you to tune your ears to natural speech patterns and explore how dialogue functions within and serves your story. You’ll learn to be a rigorous editor and to make sure every line in your play is doing its job.
Who is this for? This workshop is suitable for both completely new and emerging writers with a bit more experience.
Requirements: No experience is necessary but you will need to bring in a short preparatory exercise which will be specified once you have booked your place.
*Places are limited and are reserved on a strictly first come first serve basis, so early booking is advised.
Date and time: Thursday 20 October 7pm-9pm
Location: RADA Studios (Studio 7), 16 Chenies St, London WC1E 7EX (nearest tube: Goodge Street)
