Join authors David Wragg, Sebastien de Castell, J.S. Dewes, Marina Lostetter and Julia Vee for another FanFiAddict author roundtable! During the discussion, these five talented authors share their takes on CHARACTER THROUGH DIALOGUE, unpacking the ways in which dialogue and character are intertwined, how to best convey a character through the words they speak, what goes said versus unsaid, making dialogue sound unique to each character and more.

This is the seventh edition of our monthly AUTHOR ROUNDTABLE series, where we bring a handful of authors together to discuss a topic related to SF/F/H, writing craft, publishing and more.
