A BIPOC Writing Circle
Join a community of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) writers and listeners — all for FREE!
Try something new
No writing experience required! Led by a Write Around Portland volunteer facilitator of color, Resonate consists of writing, sharing, and giving strengths-based feedback to each other. (Sharing is optional!)
Find your Community
Resonate sessions give plenty of opportunity to listen to others’ stories. Many folks return week after week for a space to unwind and decompress. Resonate is an opportunity to build genuine ties and connection within our community of color.
Led by a Write Around Portland facilitator of color, Resonate consists of writing, sharing, and giving strengths-based feedback to each other. No preparation or experience in writing is required! Resonate is a great way to unlock your creativity, build or maintain a writing practice, and get some writing done!
* Please note that this program is reserved exclusively for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color. If you’re looking for a space to write and do not identify as BIPOC, all writers are invited to join us at Freewrite or Prompt!
