Master Class with Michael Redhill: Crafting Realistic Dialogue


On April 15th join gritLIT and award-winning author, Michael Redhill, for our Master Class Series on Crafting Realistic Dialogue. gritLIT's Writing Master Classes offer established and emerging writers a chance to hear advice from some of Canada’s best authors in a small group setting.

Nothing pulls a reader out of a story faster than clunky dialogue. In this master class, 2017 Giller Prize winner Michael Redhill offers insight on conversational styles and tactics and discusses how to use dialogue in storytelling and as an element of character development. Redhill will share examples from literature, plays and movies and give participants a chance to hone their own skills with an in-class exercise. Come prepared to write!
