HAPPY NEW YEAR! This weekly event is still going strong, so please join us in 2021!
HEY ISA! Join us for some SCRIPT FRENZY!
ISA Portland has launched a weekly Zoom screenwriting group called SCRIPT FRENZY, and YOU’RE INVITED! It was created to keep our ISA chapter groups connected during this time of isolation. It’s also a great way to “see” our friends and keep our butts in chairs putting words on the page when distractions abound.
HOW IT WORKS:
From 9:00 AM to NOON (PACIFIC TIME) on TUESDAYS, we get on Zoom, and spend three hours of uninterrupted time to work on our screenplays (or stories or outlines or treatments or…).
9:00 — Welcome, check-in, housekeeping.
9:15 — WRITE! - no interruptions (silence: everyone’s audio feed is muted).
10:00 — BREAK (chat, pee, snack, whatever)
10:15 — WRITE - no interruptions
11:00 — BREAK (feed the cat, stretch, whatever)
11:15 — WRITE - no interruptions
12:00-12:05PM — CLOSE
Register through ISA, and we’ll send you a link with the Zoom ID and password.
This event is FREE!
Thanks, and hope to see you Tuesday morning!
Mary & David
Portland ISA Chapter
MARY ANDONIAN is a novelist and screenwriter based in the Northwest. Despite a few prestigious college degrees unrelated to writing (somewhere in there lies a dark story), Mary has authored the teen inspirational book, BITSY’S LABYRINTH (which she also adapted into a screenplay), and the screenplays TIME SHARE, GUARDIAN JOE, and THE SOUND OF RAIN. Most recently, Mary co-wrote TERMINAL with David Poulshock and Nancy Froeschle. Mary is a former board member of Willamette Writers and, over the years, her passion for writing inspired her to take on leadership positions at the group's annual conference, including Program Coordinator and Literary and Film Committee Co-Chair. In those roles, Mary collaborated with scores of Hollywood agents, managers and producers to arrange pitch sessions, seminars and workshops at the conference. Reach Mary at www.maryandonian.com
