Red Pencil 2019: Voice & Voices Handouts

Below are the handouts that our presenters will be using for their talks at this year's conference. In order to be more environmentally friendly we will not be printing out copies for all attendees, so we ask that you please save the handouts to your laptop, tablet, or other device, or print out your own copy if you wish.
