Community Readings

Twice a year, in May and December, Write Around Portland holds readings featuring participants in our free community writing workshops. Our readings promote respect for diverse groups and provide an opportunity to hear the powerful stories of gifted writers in our workshops. Few Portland events include so many diverse voices.

Readings are free, ADA-accessible and open to the public.
