Literary Portland is a resource for the Portland, OR literary community, providing information on upcoming literary events, local publishers, places, reading series, and other organizations. We strive to support the community through awareness and connection, helping writers, creators, and fans of literature find welcoming spaces for voices from all backgrounds and of all identities. If you’d like to reach out to us for any reason please feel free to contact us, as we’re always happy to hear feedback, suggestions, or requests. You can also submit an event using our submission form.

We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people of all backgrounds and identities. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of supportive resources and organizations can be found here.
