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, Jan 29-Apr 2, 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.”)

Mary currently focuses her writing time on poetry, and has studied the art of memoir, creative non-fiction and personal essays. She is a founding member of her writing critique group Broads on the Side. As a Write Around Portland volunteer, Mary has facilitated workshops for burn and trauma survivors, at-risk youth, and low-income families.
