Inspiring workshops for every writer  

All PDX Writers Workshops are currently online!

PDX Writers facilitates online workshops,
in-person workshops, and retreats
that generate great writing.
We offer craft and prompt-driven workshops
​for new and seasoned writers.  

We practice the Amherst Writers and Artists framework (AWA). Our workshop facilitators provide prompts, everyone writes for a set amount of time, and then we share our new words aloud. Following the set of guidelines provided by AWA, we respond to each piece, telling what we like, what’s strong, and what we remember.
