“She had spoken it; but she trembled when it was done, conscious that her words were listened to, and daring not even to try to observe their effect.”-Jane Austen, from Persuasion

In this workshop, we will write stories built around dialogue, around speech. Once written, we will perform the words aloud, seeing how they flow as an actual conversation. As our words are being read, we will listen, we will observe their effect, take notes, revise, and when we leave, we will have a draft that trembles with the sublime potential of speech.
