Be Writing 2016

Jacquelyn Mitchard

Be Writing 2016Be Writing 2016 was amazing! Everyone laughed and learned and  made new friends. Jacquelyn Mitchard was funny and inspiring. The winners of the Young Writers Fiction Contest awed us with their excitement and accomplishments. The wonderful lunch, generously donated by Café Yumm, was delicious. And most importantly, everyone did more writing than any of us thought possible!

Our presenters gave generously of their time and energy to support our new festival and our young writers program. For that, we will be eternally grateful.

A special thank you to our Be Writing sponsors: Lane County Community & Economic Development; Meyer Memorial Trust; Café Yumm; Luminare Press; University of Oregon; and the UO Duck Store.
