  1. The Plate Tectonics Theory of Dialogue - with Tex Thompson!

    September 2, 2017, 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM @ Roanoke Public Library

    When it comes to dialogue, a good scene is a 'geologically active' one. Like pieces of the Earth's crust, characters clash, fold, and buckle as they interact (and yes, sometimes even bump and grind!) In this high-energy, interactive workshop, we'll analyze the features of real human speech, and how to amplify and manipulate them to suit your purpose. Whether your current scene is as subtle as a tremor or as explosive as an earthquake, we'll craft dialogue guaranteed to keep your plot moving, your pages turning, and your readers on their toes. Presented free of charge for the first (and possibly only!) time in Roanoke, TX, this is a premier interactive workshop experience and an unmissable event, suitable for fiction and narrative nonfiction writers of all mediums and skill levels. Don't miss out!
