Respect. Writing. Community. 

“I have loved this workshop. I had not been writing since I lost my daughter, and when the opportunity came to me, I jumped in. It has helped me get my voice back, has given me confidence, and it’s sparked my interest in sharing my story…the workshop has started a little flame inside me.”

~ Allison Krause-Campos, writing workshop participant at Donate Life Northwest

We hope you like our new website! As we use it we’ll be ironing out any glitches. Feel free to email us with website problems so we may correct them. As always, thanks for visiting.

Workshops

We hold free creative writing workshops in hospitals, shelters, senior centers, prisons, schools and treatment facilities. We also hold workshops for a fee at Powell’s Books and HOTLIPS Pizza.

Books

We publish the stories of people who are often unheard in professionally-designed books. These books connect writers from our workshops with readers from the public.

Readings

We celebrate and create access to stories we aren’t hearing elsewhere through our community readings. These readings promote respect and include diverse voices.
