FEATURED WRITER

Keenan J. Krum

Read an interview with Keenan and learn about his experience participating in a Write Around Portland workshop.

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.
