Donate a Journal

As part of the Write Around Portland experience, every participant gets their very own journal. We always write by hand in our workshops, and journals provide each person with a private space to be creative and vulnerable. Participants also take their journal with them and keep it after the workshop ends. We want to encourage them to write whenever the urge strikes!

Two Black teenaged girls sit on a leather sofa and hold up postcards and journals. They smile at the camera.

Your donated journal can become a vessel for storytelling, validation, and connection! Here is what makes a great journal:

  • Hard cover or soft cover
  • Lined, plain, or grid paper – doesn’t matter!
  • We can use a variety of sizes but nothing too small โ€“ at least 5โ€ x 7โ€ or larger
  • It is important the journal is unused, so make sure all the pages are blank!
  • Images and words are acceptable, however please keep in mind that we avoid journals with political or religious statements, or images that are graphic, suggestive, or feature drugs or alcohol so they can be used in any group or setting
