He Says/She Says: An Intensive Character and Dialogue Workshop
Time: 2:00 PM
Moderator: A. A. Rubin, Comic Book School editor and AHOY comics writer
Description: You can learn a lot about a person from the way they talk. This is doubly true in comics, as most of the words–at least the ones the reader sees—are dialogue. Level up your character development, as we examine dialogue and characterization, and learn the secrets of syntax (sentence structure), diction (word choice), and figurative language. We will analyze the unique voices of strong characters from comics, film, tv, and prose, then apply these lessons to our own writing. Writers of all genres, mediums, and experience levels welcome.
