As Rhett tells Scarlett in the movie Gone With the Wind, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." (In the book version, there's no "frankly.") Either way it's a good line, and you should give a damn about your dialogue. Dialogue is crucial to any kind of story-fiction, nonfiction, certainly any kind of script. Bad dialogue can sink it like a hole in the hull, while good dialogue makes a story sail along beautifully.
Writing great dialogue is tricky. Here you'll learn to write dialogue that sounds lifelike, but is carefully constructed so every line resonates with characterization and meaning.
If you feel your dialogue is in need of punching up, here's your chance. "After all, tomorrow is another day."
This is a cross-genre course, applicable to any kind of writing that contains dialogue, including nonfiction.
