The verbal exchanges our hero/heroine has with other characters is usually where a story comes alive. Great dialog infuses characters with life as little else does, and poor dialog reduces them to caricatures. As with other aspects of writing, there's a craft to dialog that can be learned and that can take talent to the next level.
This online workshop includes:
The basics, punctuation and format.
Making your character' s dialog personal
Using dialog to reveal . and conceal . character
Dialog as it propels a plot forward
