Find Letting Your Written Characters Talk Too Much! Ages 11-15 on Outschool.
Students plot out and write a short action scene – only in dialogue!
In this class students will write a piece where the main character has a problem. They are stuck where they can’t see anything, smell anything, touch anything, or taste anything that can help them, they can only hear! (Are they stuck in ice? A dungeon? At the top of a Ferris wheel in the dark where all the lights are gone out?) Nearby, someones, or somethings, are talking! Students will write the story of what is going to happen next to the main character in the only way that main character will find out – by listening to their dialogue.
