Tex Thompson ~ Dialect to Die For
When it comes to dialect, we often hear that less is more. So how do you render a good Scottish brogue or Southern drawl – and, for that matter, how can you give a non-English-speaking character a voice that’s distinct but still readable?
Tex Thompson will examine how to represent accents and speakers of other languages in a way that captures their voices without reducing them to verbal tics, gimmicks, or stereotypes.

Come to the meeting prepared to have a good time!
Doors open at 10:00.
