The Writer's Passion

Summary: Karen Karbo speaks about getting to what only you can say.

On Tuesday, November 4th, at the Old Church in downtown Portland, Willamette Writers welcomes celebrated Portland author Karen Karbo, who will talk with the membership about getting to what only you can say.

Karen says: "We're talking about voice, but also about developing the ability to locate topics that resonate with you, topics in which you [the writer] develop an interest, even a passion." Cultivating passion is key because it makes your writing life so much easier, even blissful. "In a world exploding with information and 24/7 narrative, the story we all want to hear is the one that's never been told before, or never been told in the way only YOU can tell."

Karen will propose a few simple methods for discovering your abiding passions, what is interesting and meaningful enough to delve into, and what leaves you cold. "The clearer we are about what speaks to us, the easier and more powerful our writing life will become," Ms. Karbo says. And "trying to game the market is futile.... but sometimes your muse can be cajoled into finding things of interest that also interest others."

For more information on Karen Karbo, please visit We hope you'll join us at the Old Church on Tuesday, November 4th. As always, the doors open at 6:30 and the meeting gets underway promptly at 7:00 pm.
