Respect. Writing. Community.
Thank you to all our supporters at RAISE YOUR PEN, Write Around Portland’s annual fundraiser held on October 6th.
Together we raised more than $65,000 to continue bringing creative writing workshops to adults and youth in shelters, prisons, hospitals and social service agencies.
A SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR GENEROUS SPONSORS
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.
