YOUR HOSTS:

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 

 
DAVID POULSHOCK is an award-winning Northwest screenwriter and filmmaker whose work includes: TV commercials and corporate films; the best-selling WEE SING kidvid series (Universal Home Video); 13 episodes of MATHEMATICS ILLUMINATED (Annenberg Channel), and many other projects.  His original screenplays, TURBULENCE, THE EMPTY SEA (formerly THE FIX), THE WAY OF DAVE, GIDEON’S REVENGE, THE HOUSE OF LOUIE and DOG DIRTY MEAN have won accolades from the world’s top screenplay competitions.  His most current project, TERMINAL, was written in collaboration with Mary Andonian and Nancy Froeschle.  Prior to his film career, David was keyboardist with the legendary Northwest cult band, Upepo (Oregon Music Hall of Fame). He has served as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Northwest Academy and Chairman of the Willamette Writers Conference (2005). Reach David at www.davidpoulshock.com

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
