Description

YOUR COMPLETE GUIDE TO WRITING BELIEVABLE AND AUTHENTIC DIALOGUE, CONVERSATION AND SPEECH IN YOUR CREATIVE WRITING.
This smart and comprehensive creative writing guide uses practical tips, exercises and expert advice to show you how to write superb dialogue that will help your book stand out from the crowd.

LEARN HOW TO WRITE CONVINCING AND COMPELLING DIALOGUE.
Commissioning editors say good dialogue is one of the first things that make a book stand out from the crowd - and similarly, that clunky direct speech is one of the first things that will send a book straight from the slushpile to the rejections bin.
But while many other aspects of writing are pored over in intense detail, there have been very few books on the art of writing successful dialogue. In this practical guide for aspiring writers of all levels, Irving Weinman, himself a published writer and well-known creative writing tutor, uses case studies to help you explore how to write good dialogue, and gives you a range of fun and challenging exercises that will help you to write great dialogue.
