A live online workshop with Barbara Kyle

Barbara Kyle Portrait

The workshop has been postponed, we hope to reschedule at a later date.

Sometimes people can’t wait to speak; sometimes they’d rather die than speak. Sometimes people don’t say what they mean; sometimes they don’t mean what they say. All of this makes dialogue stimulating to read – and a challenge to write. But it’s well worth mastering the craft because characters, like real people, reveal so much about themselves by what they say and how they say it.

Whether you’re a beginning writer, or stalled in the middle of your novel, or eager to get your manuscript into top shape to submit to publishers, this live online workshop with bestselling author Barbara Kyle will help you breathe vibrant life into your characters’ dialogue.

Barbara Kyle is the author of seven acclaimed historical novels – the Thornleigh Saga series – all published internationally, and of contemporary thrillers, three under pen-name Stephen Kyle, including Beyond Recall, a Literary Guild Selection. Over 450,000 copies of her books have been sold in seven countries. Her latest is The Traitor’s Daughter.


Barbara has taught writers at the University of Toronto School and is a popular presenter at writers’ conferences. Her workshops, mater classes, and manuscript evaluations have launched many writers to published success. Before becoming an author, Barbara enjoyed a twenty-year acting career in television, film and stage productions in Canada and the U.S.
