All English Majors,

I wanted to inform you of a great opportunity for our English majors.

Kris Young, famous screenwriter and Professor of UCLA and LAFSC, is instructing a Screenwriting Workshop via Skype.

He will be going over the three act structure of a screenplay, characterization, format, as well as sharing his experience of being a Christian in Hollywood.

He has worked for established production companies, such as Walt Disney Studios. This is a great opportunity that can benefit our English majors!

It is on Saturday, October 23, 11 am to 12 pm, in the Mabee Library Auditorium (a.k.a. core classroom) attached to the library.

Also, Dr. Willerton’s Seminar 411/412 course can receive research class credit for attending.

Thank you for your time, and have a great day!

To learn about the speaker, see

He was arrangements chair for the Council for Programs in Technical and Scientific Communication, which met at BSU this past weekend. He earned tenure this summer, and his publication list is much longer than his old man’s was at that age. His first job out of ACU (’94) was in public radio. After a year, he moved to Dallas and did tech writing for Ericsson and other companies, commuting to UNT for a master’s in English. His doctorate is in technical communication and rhetoric, and much of his research takes the form of case studies (web page usability, print media, white papers, and other formats).

He’s a runner and loves Idaho.
