Your story matters.
Write Around Portland facilitates storytelling in underheard communities.
Dear Community Members,
People have never felt so alone. They’re overwhelmed and burned out. It’s easy to feel like our society has cracked apart. But there’s an antidote.
This year, we held a six-week writing workshop at Alano Club, a community space for people recovering from addiction. As the writers came together to write and share stories, they discovered a powerful sense of belonging. Now, months after we have left, they are STILL writing, sharing, and supporting each other!
Your donation this holiday season will make this transformation possible in the future.
Like you, we believe in the power of words to bring people together. To heal wounds. To create a world where no one has to feel alone.
Your gift will help people experiencing grief, homelessness, illness, or isolation. Can we count on your support? Please make your year-end gift to Write Around Portland today!
For us, writing isn’t about the finished product.
Through guided creative exploration and the sharing of stories, we help people listen across difference. We honor, uplift, and celebrate all voices, especially those that aren’t typically heard in our society. We cultivate empathy and compassion. And we publish new narratives that resist polarization and stereotyping.
Serving the Nonprofit Community since 1999.
Our twist on expressive writing has a profound impact on physical and mental health.
Through programs offered in-person at homeless shelters, prisons, hospitals, treatment centers, senior centers, schools, and other healthcare and social service settings, we reach hundreds of underheard people each year. What could creative writing do for your clients?
