Dialogue and Dialect with Nisi Shawl
May 17 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am PST
Our characters tell readers so much about themselves when they speak. But if characters’ speech patterns depart from our cultural defaults, how do we show that? Differences can enrich readers’ understanding of our characters and stories, yet we risk alienating our audience when we draw attention to those differences in the wrong ways. Examples and in-class exercises will deepen your understanding of how to best represent nonstandard speech.
Join Nisi Shawl for an online workshop on writing dialogue with nonstandard speech patterns. Limited enrollment (15); scholarships available.
