Clip from “Finding Forrester” shown in my talk at the Faith & Culture Writers Conference Saturday

My all time favorite movie is Finding Forrester

and I will use this film to illustrate one of the points in my

workshop, “FREELANCE WRITING- Getting Published, Building your Platform, and Impacting Culture” that I am leading at the

Faith & Culture Writers Conference-Taking our writing to the streets,

the coffee shops, and yes, the church, ” taking place Saturday,

April 2 at Western Seminary in Portland. You can walk in the day of to register. Just 65 dollars gets you in to hear 20 award winning authors, speakers, theologians, professors, and all around great people!

I am the conference director and I so look forward to bringing creative people of faith together into community for a day to celebrate how faith impacts culture. 

It is neat to see the various places that the conference has appeared. Here are just a few links:

    Maru, thanks for letting readers know who wrote the screen play for Finding Forrester! (and other fine films)- you are ever the movie guy!!

  2. pongboy says

    Let’s give credit where credit is duo. A wonderful original screenplay by our very talented Portland, Oregon residence, Mike Rich! From one writer to another, it feels good to be sharing the same creative city. I met him once, a nice man. I’m a big fan! :)

    Other good movies by Mr. Rich I recommend: The Rookie, Nativity Story, Radio, Secretariat.

    Hi Daddy- it is worth the wait!! (or, you can borrow from me- I have the video cassette- need to get the DVD!)

  4. Helmut Becker says

    I am very curious to see Finding Forrester. Apparently, it is very popular. I have ordered it from the library upon Cornelia’s recommendation, but there is a long wait.
