Write Around Portland offers a unique generative workshop called Prompt designed for writers and aspiring writers in the greater Portland area who want to participate in a Write Around workshop and support the communities we traditionally serve who might not otherwise have access to writing and community.

Based on the acclaimed Write Around Portland model, this dynamic 10-week workshop incorporates our favorite writing exercises designed to inspire the writing life, including freewriting; work with writing elements; strength-building feedback and early-draft revision. The workshop caps off with a community broadside.

Pre-registration is required and is limited to 14 adults per workshop Session 2: 10 Wednesdays, March 1– May 3, 6:30-8:30 PM. Cost: $300 – Payment plans available. Cost includes free parking, snacks and access to the “Bowels of Powell’s.” (Accessing the “bowels of Powell’s” requires climbing a flight of 12 stairs.)

Proceeds help fund Write Around Portland programs, including our free workshops in hospitals, treatment centers, schools, senior centers, prisons, low income housing buildings and homeless shelters.
