Kathie Fong Yoneda & Pamela Wallace
Kathie and Pamela have teamed up to present a unique seminar which covers the basics of screenwriting as well as the basics of marketing and selling your script. This seminar gives the writer an expansive, but comprehensive overview of screenwriting from both buyer's (Kathie) and seller's (Pamela) points of view. This can be formulated as either a one-day, weekend or five-day intensive.

She has written scripts for cable and network television movies, pilots for television series, and has dozens of published novels.
