Terroir Festival in the News Register

March 26, 2015














One of our presenters, Emily Grosvenor, who will be speaking on how to put together a fiction or nonfiction book proposal, wrote a Viewpoint opinion essay for the News-Register on the relationship between place and character.

“Places change people. In fiction, we see concretely how setting affects a character’s action, identity, relationships, learning, and development. Pick up a person with two hands and drop them down in any other setting and more will change than their geography. There can be no Harry without Hogwarts, no Huck without the muddy Mississippi, no Heathcliff without the misty moors, no Laura without her Little House on the Prairie.”
We are very excited to see the kind of writing produced by the people living here in Yamhill County and beyond. If you haven’t already, you can register for the festival by clicking on “Registration” above, filling out the registration form and sending it with your check to:
