Write Around Portland: Free and Low-Cost Creative Writing Workshops

Writing is often thought of as something done in isolation; we know there is immense power when writing is done in community. Join us for creativity and community-building, with generative writing exercises, sharing and strengths-based feedback. Write Around Portland's workshop model, refined over 22 years, is proven for people of all writing levels: from the budding writer to the published author.
