Quotes Revisited - Maybe

Post by oursilverstrands » Tue Jul 05, 2016 9:28 pm

Jan, I hope I'm not rehashing an old subject that has already been covered. I have a question about the use of quote marks when the entire remarks from a speech is included in the narrative, and the speaker is duly identified. Must you use quote marks at the beginning and at the end of the written speech?

Thanks,

Lillian

I write even when I think I can't, because I must. :-)

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!
