Join a Free Community Writing Workshop

In this workshop, facilitators will write alongside participants through a series of freewrites and will give positive, strength-building feedback. Workshop participants write stories, poems, memoirs, letters, essays while experimenting with imagery, character development, writing in different voices, dialogue and early-draft revision. Participants also have the opportunity to share their writing and give and receive positive feedback to grow as writers and build respectful community.

Participants strengthen their writing along with their sense of community. While not a traditional class, this workshop is educational, helping individuals deepen their writing, reading, listening and communication skills. Although it is not a counseling or support group, participants tell us that the process is therapeutic, healing and reduces their sense of isolation. Write Around Portland has inspired participants to complete their GEDs, attend college, stick with treatment programs, transition back to our community after incarceration and break cycles of abuse.

Writing journals, pens and light snacks provided.
