An organization for published and aspiring writers.
Willamette Writers' goal is to provide and encourage a creative environment and support system for current and aspiring writers. Since
its beginning in 1965, Willamette Writers has provided meeting places for the exchange of ideas and information and has initiated programs designed to help writers
increase skills related to the craft of writing. Both published, self-published, screenwriters and aspiring writers are invited to join. Dues are $45 a year. Need
help writing a novel? A screenplay? Promoting a self-published novel? This is a good group to join.
Cynthia Whitcomb offers an introduction to the group on YouTube.
Tuesday, April 7th, at the Old Church in downtown Portland at 7 pm, Willamette Writers welcomes Eric Witchey, who will speak about Why a Bad Attitude Is a Good Thing, and why that's
important to a writer.
For information about our meetings in Portland, Eugene, Central Point, Salem, Corvallis, and Newport (Oregon Coast)
