the power of writing

this video will give you goosebumps.

witness the transformative power of writing in this short segment from a free writing workshop, made possible by write around portland.

get a behind-the-scenes look at the continuing impact of this non-profit, which brings free 10-week writing workshops to underserved populations all over the portland area. from burn units and prisons to homeless shelters and low-income housing, these communities get the chance to connect to one another through simple, yet powerful writing exercises.

I’ve had the privilege to volunteer with write around portland for over two years now, including one year as a workshop facilitator. I just love what they do, and what I get to do alongside them, thanks to the generosity of many, many volunteers and donors.
