Write Your Story

Are you interested in capturing your family’s story in writing? Join us for writing workshops this quarter that will guide participants in writing personal stories about family relationships, first and second generation experiences, and immigration. No previous writing experience necessary.

This workshop will be led by Write Around Portland, an agency workshop built around a model of freewriting and accessibility. Space is limited.

This program is free and open to the public. 

Requests for ASL interpretation may be made via email at jsma@pdx.edu or phone (503) 725-6238. In order to ensure that ASL interpretation can be provided in time for this event, please make your requests by Monday, September 18.*


*Accessibility initiatives have been made possible by a grant from the Richard & Helen Phillips Charitable Fund.
