L.A. ZINE FEST | Fundraising Committee |LEAD COORDINATOR
I collaborated ideas and helped solidified a theme for a fundraising event with a small committee board. As lead coordinator, I secured the venue and mapped the event's layout. I arranged for and obtained the raffle prizes, snacks, and Large Game attractions [Giant Connect Four & Giant Jenga]. I also managed the press release and promotional outreach materials of the "Board Game Night" Fundraising event. We successfully raised enough funds to secure a Guest lecturer for 2018's L.A. Zine Fest.

Los Angeles Nerd Nite 2015 January 13, 2015 PRESENTATION #2: Forced Entry: Busting Into a Story’s World Within the First Paragraph By Shawnna Woolridge
This conference presentation explored the deconstruction of the opening sentences of my favorite novels in order to understand the compelling attributes of style and world building information conveyed from my favorite authors. Using the patterns found, I constructed a method and definition to comprehend and re-create the success of captivating an audience from the first sentence of the text. The goal of the presentation was to share my research and methodology with the audience so that they, too, could identify the patterns of world-building techniques from their favorite authors and apply this technique to strengthen their personal work.
I wrote for a Lifestyle and Fashion Advertorial Company: 'TruStory Media'.
