Fictional Confabs: Writing Literary Dialogue with Oisin Curran

  • Blue Hill Harbor School 57 South Street Blue Hill, ME United States (map)

Most fiction is an authorial monologue. But as a game of make-believe, it often features conversations. How do we deal with dialogue when it's inside the monologue of fiction (technically, philosophically, creatively)? In this workshop, we’ll look at a range of literary examples, talk them over and try some out.
