'Words in Play' Special Workshop: Dialing Up Your Dialogue

Have you been wishing you could get some writing instruction but ever balked at the cost or the commitment? If so, Deb McKew, a member of Portland Writers Group and a writing instructor (find out more about her and all her endeavors at www.wordsinplay.net), has offered to host a two-hour workshop on how to write effective dialogue. The workshop will include a pre-assignment (see below), in-class writing prompts, and a lesson on dialogue.

This workshop is free and for one-time only, so please take advantage of this opportunity and let both myself - Scott, PWG organizer and founder - and Deb know what you think, and maybe we can work out more of these in the future.

Take a notebook with you wherever you go. For one week, write snippets of overheard real conversation (while you are waiting in line, sitting on a bus, dining at a restaurant). Make a list of these snippets in your notebook and bring these with you to the workshop.

    Very enjoyable, a nice couple of hours to revisit the mechanics of dialog.

    Hi, I really wanted to join all of you and learn from you, but I just got a assignment to give Yoga classes on Thursday nights. Is there another time I could possibly join all of you? Please let me know.

    Thank you all for your interest. This will be a fun evening. Don't forget to keep a journal of snippets of conversations that you hear about town -- don't judge, just record what you hear!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
