So nice to see Mary, David, and Nancy again. I so enjoyed tonight’s speaker, a woman role model, who had so much to say. I won a door prize too, the workshop tribe book. Should be fun to delve into on a rainy evening. Thanks again and hope to see you at another ISA event soon.

Best, 

Lisa Parsons

P.S. Bill Johnson won a prize too for a submission to a contest.  Our lucky day totally.  Even gluten free cookies I like too

Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for holding this event. It was both informative and encouraging. I'm also a graduate of the NW Film Center School of Film certificate program and I took you holding it there as a definite sign that I should come. Of course, that sign turned to bright neon when I won the free entry for the Cinequest screenwriting competition as a door prize. Time for me to give one of my scripts another polish and submit it to Cinequest.

Thanks again,

Noah Hale
