Who We Are

Portland Writers is the place to grow your writing, where you can fearlessly explore your inner depths and allow your stories to come through you and onto the page. Here you’ll find a great place to dispel your Writer’s Block. Our approach develops confidence in your own voice and inspires you to write more.

We offer workshops and retreats for writers of all experience levels. Using the Amherst Writers and Artists (AWA) method, we provide a safe and supportive environment where you can challenge your writer self and deepen your practice, whether you’re a seasoned writer or just beginning to experiment on the page.

Every Portland Writers workshop creates a respectful environment where both you and your work are welcome.
