The nonprofit Write Around Portland is offering online creative writing workshops every other Thursday, 11 am-12:30 pm September 23 through December 16.
Although writing is often thought of as something done in isolation, Write Around Portland knows there is immense power when writing is done in community.
Their workshop model, refined over 22 years, is suitable for people of all writing levels, from the budding writer to the published author. By offering workshops online, people can attend from wherever they have access to reliable wi-fi or internet connection.
Join in the creativity and community-building with generative writing exercises, sharing, and strength-based feedback by registering at writearound.org.
Preregistration is required for each workshop with registration, one hour before the start of each workshop. Once registered, Write Around Portland will send a Zoom link via email.
Participants will need an electronic device with internet, camera and microphone capabilities (cellphone, tablet, iPad, Chromebook, laptop or desktop computer), pen and paper and a quiet space to be able to fully participate.
The cost of the workshops are on a sliding scale, $0-$30 per person. Workshop fees support the organization’s free community writing workshops in hospitals, prisons, affordable housing buildings, homeless shelters and other social service agencies. Each workshop is limited to 10 adults, 18 and older.
