Celebrating 20 years of respect, writing and community.
20th Anniversary Volunteer Feature with Kellie Ernst
Kellie first got involved with Write Around Portland in 2009 and has volunteered with us ever since! Read about our volunteer program and Kellie’s experience as a volunteer here.
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.
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.
