PORTLAND
(DOC) Write Around Portland is a Portland-based non-profit that reaches out to under-served populations and provides them with the opportunity to enroll in a free, rigorous, identity-specific, ten-week creative writing workshop culminating in a public reading and a published anthology. TO PAY MY WAY WITH STORIES closely follows participants and explores how they transcend their difficulties—including cancer, HIV/AIDS, methadone, Down’s syndrome and poverty—as they find their voices.

Upcoming Event: Film Screening Fundraiser

The Camino Documentary is about the experience of walking the life-changing, 500-mile pilgrimage across Northern Spain known as “The Camino de Santiago”. The film follows six strangers from incredibly diverse walks of life, as they attempt to cross a country on foot with only a backpack, a pair of boots, and an open mind. Driven by an inexplicable calling and a grand sense of adventure, each pilgrim throws themselves heart-and-soul into their physical trek to Santiago, and their personal journey to themselves. (Directed by a workshop alum)
