ONLINE Portland Women Writers Weekly Event

Online event

Live in the Portland area? Oregon? Elsewhere in the world but wanna hang with us anyway because the time and vibe works for you? This is the event for you, because it's online!

We gather once a week to get work done, encourage one another, and talk about whatever writing related (or not) things that pop up.

FORMAT: We'll talk for a few minutes waiting for people to arrive. Then we set an intention for what we want to accomplish in the first 60-90 minutes of work. We set a timer for quiet writing, and boom! We're off to the races. After the timer goes off, we talk about how we did and repeat it all if people are up for it.

PLEASE come prepared to work on something, be it writing, editing, research, or whatever you want to get done. This is a productivity group, NOT a critique group. Thanks for understanding!

NW Women Writers @ Coffee Time

Coffee Time

As of July 16th, we're back in person! Coffee Time on NW 21st is ready to jam.

Come join us Fridays and be a part of our group of awesome women writers. We're pretty informal, gathering to motivate each other to write, talk about writing, or support each others' writing endeavors. Our format is to chat as people arrive, set an intention of productivity, and write/edit for an hour. Afterward we'll have another chat about how it went and help work through any writing issues a member might be having. Then repeat as desired!

Being a writer doesn't need to be so solitary. This is not a workshop or critique group, just a place to write together in a positive, supportive environment... with coffee and cookies!

Please bring something to work on, whether it's a pad and pencil, laptop, or tablet. Lots of people also use this time to read or research for their projects. Poets, memoirists, bloggers, fiction, screenwriters and songwriters come frequently, so don't be shy!

Show up and leave whenever you need to. The facilitator is there until 5, but doesn't expect anyone else to be ;)

This is an inclusive event and trans/nb women friendly.

PLEASE NOTE: to mitigate some risk of the Delta variant, we will be once again capping the number of attendees per week. Please update your RSVP accordingly if you cannot make it.
