Russell Smith: Writing Dialogue in FictionWorkshop

Russell Smith talks about how to make dialogue a driving force in the creation of character and action. Using examples from his favourite writers, he will delineate what makes dialogue both lifelike and compelling, sharing both useful technical tricks and common errors to avoid.

Russell Smith was born in Johannesburg, South Africa, and grew up in Halifax, Canada. He studied French literature at Queen’s. He is the author of nine books, eight of them fiction. His most recent book, Confidence, was longlisted for the Giller Prize and shortlisted for the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize. He writes a weekly column on the arts for the Globe and Mail and teaches fiction in the MFA in Creative Writing program at the University of Guelph.
