2019 Realm Makers Conference
Elective Session #11
TECHNICALLY SPEAKING – DIALOGUE & SUBTEXT
Instructor Ronie Kendig
Good dialogue is about more than simply what your character says or what appears as narrative. This workshop
will look at classic dialogue tips, but it will also explore ways to “say” something without actually saying it. We
will examine subtext, which in its broadest definition refers to a theme or message in a work, but we’ll draw
that down to your character’s own message, what’s spoken, and what’s not.
