”As a writer you try to listen to what others aren’t saying…and write about the silence.” – N.R. Hart

So you’ve fleshed out your main plot points, sketched a character (or characters), and perhaps drafted a scene by scene. You’ve got a framework to be proud of, you’re certain that your story idea, you’re almost ready to sit back, relax and pat yourself on the back…but then you realise, the work has only just begun!
It’s time to take the next step. Use this nano course to identify the value of dialogue,  subtext and dramaturgy; explore the most timely and effective ways to employ the elements in your creative writing – whether you’re working on a screenplay, stage script, radio drama, manuscript or literature-other.
