Young Willamette Writers Meeting with Rosanne Parry

November 1, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

On November 1, 2016, at 7 p.m. join Young Willamette Writers in Portland for a talk presented by Rosanne Parry. Rosanne will be sharing from her very popular “Seven Deadly Sins” workshop.

About Our Speaker – Rosanne Parry

Rosanne Parry Shares from Her Workshop “Seven Deadly Sins”

Rosanne will be sharing from her very popular “Seven Deadly Sins” workshop.  She says, “Every story needs conflict and the strongest conflicts come from characters who have habits and attitudes that tend to get them into trouble. Sometimes we call those “issues.” They used to be called the Seven Deadly Sins. Rosanne’s talk will help us develop character conflicts that are deep, interesting, and believable.”

And bonus points (maybe a prize) to those who can name the Seven Deadly Sins!

Young Willamette Writers meetings are always free and open to any 5th-10th grader who wishes to attend. We get together at the Old Church on SW 11th and Clay from 7-8 p.m. on the first Tuesday of every month. See you there!
