How To Punctuate Dialogue In Your Prose

How To Punctuate Dialogue In Your Prose | Make Your Writing Professional | Scoop.it

Dialogue is one of my favorite things to write, and I wish that my job as a technical writer offered more (or any) opportunities for writing it. In prose, it can be a great way to get inside your characters. However, some writers find punctuating dialogue confusing: How do I use quotation marks? What is a dialogue tag? Where do the commas go? How come I see writers who don't even use quotation marks? Wait, is that an em dash??

 

This article will cover the basic ways to punctuate dialoge in American English, as well as explore some of the less traditional methods and how those choices affect tone in your story. We will focus on dialogue in prose writing that is being spoken by characters in the story.
