Vicki Taylor talks dialogue

Vicki Taylor, one of FWA's founding members, presented a workshop on dialogue on July 9. (My deepest apologies for reviewing this so late! I will add a picture later.) Reading from several of her works, she demonstrated the use of dialogue in moving a story forward and adding tension. At the end of her presentation everyone was asked to write a piece of dialogue, and many shared what they had written. She offered 2 of her books as door prizes to conclude the evening.
