Workshop Costs

VASTA Members $800*
ANY Union Members $800**
Non-members $900***

There is also a PART ONE ONLY OPTION for $500 ($400 with union membership)!

This three-day session (Part One) focuses on:

  • Awareness and practice of precise articulation action
  • The physical actions that produce all the sounds of the world’s languages—”Omnish”
  • Vocal Tract Posture—the articulatory basis for the sounds in accents and languages

This session will also prepare the participant for Part Two, which includes detailed phonetic transcription and an exploration of the skills of formal and informal speech. (No phonetic transcription will be used in Part One of the workshop.) Email knightthompsonspeechwork@gmail.com if interested in a PART ONE ONLY OPTION.

In order to plan effectively for these workshops, it’s important to have a clear sense of the commitment of potential participants. For that reason we ask for a deposit of $200 to secure your place in the workshop. This is due on November 2nd. The full payment is due on November 23rd. If your plans change, and you are unable to attend, we will refund any payment less $75 if you inform us by December 1st. After that date, however, no refunds are possible. Please plan accordingly.
