This workshop is for writers working on comedy, short stories, songs, poetry, novels, memoir, creative nonfiction / nonfiction, plays, scripts & more!

Using workshop techniques, participants will have fun practicing/writing their own dialogue, individually & in groups. Participants will write dialogue together in co-writing sessions (as done by TV writers) to foster creativity & will leave the workshop with fresh ideas/inspiration.

The author will share lessons learned, tips, ideas, and techniques gathered while working with the renowned authors who brought Morgantown the New Works Festival scripts.

Ted will share script examples from his popular October comedy stage play/show, "Zombie Texts from the Future" (see review here: http://www.thedaonline.com/arts_and_entertainment/article_0dad33ce-60c0-11e4-b885-0017a43b2370.html), along with dialogue excerpts from his literary short story, "Is Freedom on the Menu," in Diner Stories: Off the Menu published by Mountain State Press.
