November 16, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


On Wednesday, November 16, 2016, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., at the Salem Public Library, Willamette Writers Salem will host Eric Witchey who will present “Work the Genre, the Market, or Universal Themes?”

Creativity - Eric WitcheyWork the Genre, the Market, or Universal Themes?

Award-winning writer Eric Witchey, who has sold fiction in 10 genres, will discuss the power of deep, universal story themes and how they can render genre and market concerns irrelevant for professional writers. He will demonstrate how all fiction, regardless of market category, can be developed from universal, human experiences. A demonstration of cross-genre story development will include audience participation, and writers will go home with new story ideas.
