St. Helen’s B

In this perennial Willamette Writers Conference favorite, award-winning writer Eric Witchey will lead a fun, fast-paced, audience-interactive seminar that demonstrates brainstorming, outlining, and writing techniques that result in a collaborative short story written on the spot by the presenter and the audience. Attendees will walk away with handouts and techniques they can immediately apply to the development of new short stories, new novels, and WIP revision.
