This year’s annual event focuses on you. How? We highlight CAL’s most powerful natural resource, sharing ideas and information with each other.

At last year’s CAL’s celebration I sat next to Jalynn Venus, winner of the screenwriting award. She told me about her craft. Two weeks later, Margi Evans mentioned a publisher suggested a screen adaptation of one of her series. I connected the two. They produced the screenplay. I only heard about it when I saw the entry in this year’s awards competition.
