Learn to Write by Reading: Dialogue



Successful writers say it all the time: To be a good writer, you need to be a good reader. So we challenge you to read more and to read outside of your comfort zone.

This month, read a book that incorporates authentic dialogue, whether it’s age-appropriate speech, spot-on dialects, or conversations that keep you turning the page. Below are some books we recommend, but feel free to chime in and offer other options to our readers. Then stay tuned for some practical prompts based on our Reading Challenge that you can apply to your own writing.

Alicia: The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

Laura: The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, or anything by John Green

Megan: A Curtain of Green and Other Stories by Eudora Welty
