Event description
Paper Covers Rock is a new annual readers and writers festival on Salt Spring Island, BC, taking place March 5-7 2021.

About this Event

Dialogue can be the best tool in your author's toolbox, or it can be tiresome and intimidating. In this workshop Danny will explain why he initially struggled with dialogue in his writing, and how he overcame it.

You will learn how to appreciate, and even cautiously employ, authentic dialogue in works of fiction.
