Willamette Writers

PENELOPE BASS
7 pm., Tuesday September 03
The Old Church
1422 SW 11th Ave.
 
Although screenwriters might seem like the antithesis of serious fiction authors, there are lessons to be learned for those willing to pay attention. Willamette Writers hosts Portland screenwriter, playwright and author Johnny Shaw (Dove Season, Big Maria) to speak about what fiction writers can learn from screenwriting—from crossover techniques to developing ideas. Listen up and you could be the author of the next bestselling novel based on a child’s board game.

Where: The Old Church
Phone: 222-2031
Address: 1422 SW 11th Ave.
