He Said/She Said: How Dialogue in Fiction Advances Story

Dialogue is a vital tool in the process of storytelling. When characters speak to each other, they reveal not only basic plot, but the intricacies of human conflict, the difficulties inherent in relationships, and who they are in their best and worst moments.The workshop will cover how characters expose themselves and the elements of fiction through what they say to each other, and sometimes what they refuse to say to each other.

Facilitator  Michelle (Mel) Boyajian holds a BFA in dramatic writing from NYU, an MA in English and Creative Writing from Miami University, and an MFA from UNCW, where she has taught in the Creative Writing and English departments. Her short stories have appeared in Third Coast and timber Creek Review, and were nominated for the Pushcart Prize. Her first novel, Lies of the Heart, was published by viking Press in April 2010.
