Writing Dialogue Well
Shoreline Community College Library: Room 4202 
Getting characters to talk to each other can reveal so much about your plot and your novel. Dialogue is a great way to move things along and force your characters to talk through plot problems. This is the perfect session for writers who are losing steam and need a boost!

Nov 21 @ 6:00 pm
Moving Forward (By Moving Backward) 
Shoreline Community College Library: Room 4202 
Taking a look at the beginning of your novel can give you hints at what you need to do for your ending. Reflection and awareness are valuable tools to writers and can give you that pensive moment you need to move forward. Previous scenes may have unrealized details or characters just under the surface. Come to this session to get the most out what you’ve already written.
