New workshop group looking for screenwriters

Lowcountry Screenwriters is a new workshop group in Beaufort looking for committed individuals who either have screenwriting experience, some prior experience in film or prose writing, or who have a strong interest in pursuing film writing.

This will not be a class on screenwriting but rather a workshop to critique and provide feedback to the group.  If you have any interest on attending the initial get-together, please email us at emilydfj@gmail.com or bakerjef@hotmail.com and tell us a little about yourself.

An Evening on Fripp with Dan and Randy McCormick

Dan McCormick — a beloved Fripp resident — and his brother, Dan, have put the McCormick name on the music map as studio musicians and song writers with hits sung and recorded by famous artists, such as Randy’s “Real Love” by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers and “Suspicions” by Eddie Rabbitt, or Dan’s “Crazy in Love” sung by Conway Twitty and a Top-10 hit with Kenny Rogers’ version.  

At 5 p.m. on Nov. 16 and 17, the McCormick brothers will perform all their favorites at the Fripp Community Centre, 205 Tarpon Boulevard, sponsored by Fripp Friends of Music. Attendees get a free pass at the Fripp gate. Tickets are available at the door and are $25 for adults (cash or check only) and free for students.
