Master Class: “The Power of Subtext: Body Language, Dialogue Cues, and Visceral Responses”
Visceral responses can be more than roiling stomachs and pounding hearts.
Dialogue cues can be more than predictable, carry-no-power, pin-the-cliched-tag-on-the-dialogue.
Body language can be more than cookie-cutter expressions. More than one-descriptor smiles. More than over-used phrases that many readers skim.
This power-packed workshop will teach writers how to how to add psychological power to body language, dialogue cues, and visceral responses. We’ll cover:
All teaching points will be supported with multiple examples from a variety of genres.
Participants are requested to bring five chapters (or more), printed, double-spaced, in a binder. They’ll have opportunities to review their chapters and rewrite or add the right amount of subtext in the right places.
