Workshop: Writing Dialogue that Works led by Tiffany Tyson

August 18, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+0

In-Person at Bonfire Coffee Company (433 Main Street, Carbondale, CO 81623) & Virtual 

Tiffany Tyson will be teaching the workshop virtually. Both in-person and virtual attendees will be able to join.

Dialogue can be a powerful tool for characterization, motivation, plot advancement, and emotion, or it can be a clunky thing that bogs down the action and takes the reader out of the story. How can you be sure your dialogue elevates rather than deflates? We’ll look at examples of effective dialogue, discuss what makes these examples work, and use what we learn to practice writing dialogue on our own. In the process, we’ll explore subtext, rhythm, pacing, attribution, and more. Students should bring their preferred writing tools.

This meeting is for AWN members only; interested writers are welcome to join at the meeting.

All attendees must upload their proof of vaccination in advance on the ReturnSafe app


Tiffany Quay Tyson will lead this workshop virtually. AWN members are invited to participate online or in-person at Bonfire Coffee Company in Carbondale.
