New Writing Workshop Added!

Prompt: A Write Around Portland Community Workshop

Join us for a weekly seminar devoted to generative writing and the transformative power of writing in community. Based on the successful Write Around Portland model, this dynamic workshop incorporates many of our favorite exercises designed to inspire the writing life, including free-writing; group discussion; imagery, character, plot and poetry development; and early-draft revision.

All proceeds from Prompt go directly toward funding Write Around Portland workshops and programs for people affected by HIV/AIDS, veterans living with PTSD, people with mental illness, seniors living on a low income, teen parents and many others.
