ISA Webinar with Max Timm - A Dialogue About Dialogue

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Hello ISA members! Join us on zoom on October 21:

Note for all members: During Covid and the financial hardship for writers, the ISA will continue to offer these courses for free to all members. Normally our webinars hosted by Max Timm are for ISAConnect members only.

One of the most difficult elements of the storytelling process - in both the creative development side and the educational side - is dialogue. Why? It's difficult as an educator and consultant to truly teach someone how to write great dialogue. I can teach writers how to understand structure, practices that will help develop characters, and I feel confident I can break down how best to understand conceptualizing a story (hook, uniqueness, etc). But providing education on how to write dialogue is nearly impossible because it isn't something that falls within any kind of template or formula...nor is it supposed to. Dialogue is completely relative to a number of things; personal voice, genre, character flaw and intentions, and even structure because structure is what propels the development of a character...and the development of a character is what evolves how a character reacts to the situations she finds herself in. Even just typing that is a handful and difficult to digest. So this webinar is going to talk about the nuances of dialogue, and how/when dialogue works and doesn't work. Be ready to expand the brain a bit - it will be a little of a brain teaser, but brain teasing can be healthy.

We will spend plenty of time on Q&A during this webinar, so please feel free to ask any questions at any time as Max intends to get to and through all of them.

Thanks for offering this opportunity. I'll be traveling out of town on this date. Is there a possibility that I might get a consultation with Max on my logline at his convenience after Oct. 21st when I'm back in Los Angeles? I am not, unfortunately, a member at this time.

Appreciate the consideration!

Max Timm

After two years at the Holy Cross College at the University of Notre Dame, swimming through a Liberal Arts major and watching football, Max discovered the art of filmmaking and transferred to Columbia College Chicago. He majored in screenwriting and producing at Columbia, and eventually found himself dizzy within the entertainment capital, Los Angeles. After multiple assistant positions at film distribution and advertising companies, Max stumbled upon Writers Boot Camp (WBC) in Santa Monica, CA. Graduating from its Professional Membership in 2007, Max was asked to stay with WBC as a Membership Coordinator and Instructor. After six years, working his way up to Creative Director and Director of Development, Max worked with thousands of writers on their screenplays and novels, as well as personally consulted A-List celebrities.

Both a screenwriter and novelist, Max has created a lifelong relationship with writing. His focus is within the realms of Middle Grade and Young Adult fiction, as well as movies geared toward family entertainment. He still believes James Howe's Bunnicula series is one of the finest middle grade series ever written, and that Mr. Howe's book, "The Celery Stalks at Midnight", may very well be the best book title ever.
