Write Around Portland says
Join us for a 10 week workshop devoted to generative writing and the transformative power of writing in community. Based on the successful Write Around Portland (http://www.writearound.org/) model, this dynamic workshop incorporates many of our favorite exercises designed to inspire the writing life, including free-writing; group discussion; imagery, character, plot and poetry development; and early-draft revision.

All proceeds from Prompt go directly toward funding Write Around Portland workshops and programs in hospitals, prisons, schools, treatment centers, low-income housing facilities and more.

Prompt: Meets weekly for 10 weeks
Ten Tuesdays, May 19 to July 21, 6:30-8:30pm
Powell’s City of Books, 10th and W. Burnside
$285 (Payment plans available. Includes free parking, snacks and access to the “Bowels of Powells.”)

Prompt facilitator Mary Kibbe engages with the practice and experience of writing in as many ways as she can fit into her schedule.
