20th Anniversary Donor Feature: Anne Scott

Anne first participated in a Write Around Portland workshop in fall 2007 at the Oregon Burn Center. Grateful for the way the workshop helped her heal, Anne decided to give back. Read an interview with Anne here.

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.
