Happy Holidays From WW FiLMLaB

Willamette Writers is a diverse community of writers. Screenwriters, poets, novelists, playwrights, memoirists  . . . all genres, all writers are welcome. We have different levels of accomplishment, expertise and success, but we all share one thing in common: the celebration of the written word.

During these final days of Chanukah and Christmas, our hope for you, our writing family, is that there is time for contemplation in your Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday; time for charity in this season of hope; and time for friendships old and new. We wish you moments of stillness, thoughtfulness and solitude where ideas can flourish; and a fertile imagination where they can find purchase.

Willamette Writers and #FiLMLaB wish you a very merry, very happy holiday season, and a heart and home filled with happiness, love and joy.
