Climactic Dialogue for the Climactic Story Teller: A Writing Workshop with Diana Kirk
Dialogue is the difference between grey skies and perwinkle horizons. It’s the color, the peak, the cherry on the top of a banana split. It’s an accent to any story and it brings you from one of narration only to a multi-faceted quilt of characters and nuances that can only be found when characters speak outloud. Learn how to write using dialogue to tell your story or fold into an existing one. Find people’s voices, find your own.
In this four hour workshop, we’ll tell stories from our own lives and practice writing these into small vignettes or polaroids of dialogue leading to a climactic conclusion. When you leave, you’ll have the tools and confidence necessary to write other people’s words, to write your own words…with intent.
Diana Kirk is a liar, a hussy, a boss lady and a downright dirty dawg. Which means she’s a helluva writer. The author of Licking Flames: Tales of a Half-Assed Hussy and Nasty! has been published in Progessive magazine, Nailed, Psychology of It and has appeared on NPR. Her stories, her vignettes and her ramblings can be found all over social media and most nights at her 92 year old bar called Workers Tavern in Astoria, Oregon.
