About Us

​Since 2010, PDX Writers has been offering quality writing workshops, retreats, and editorial services at reasonable prices to a broad community of writers. All workshops are grounded in the Amherst Writers and Artists Method (AWA), helping writers understand what is strong and memorable in their writing as well as to develop well-honed critiquing skills. We always write several times in every workshop, strengthening our writing chops. We share what we’ve written with the group, giving writers the rare opportunity to read to an audience and hear what’s working in their pieces.
Try us out! We’re confident you will find our workshops fun and addictive!
