Update 6: Literary Arts has launched the Booth Emergency Fund for Writers and Oregon Humanities is offering emergency funding for organizations. Both have deadlines coming up in May, which have been added to the calendar below.

Update 5: RACC has established an Emergency Artist Relief Fund to which you can apply and donate. They have also set up a page listing other relief resources.

Update 4: Two local Relief Funds for small businesses and artists have been set up if you’d like to apply for support or offer donations. They are the Portland Small Business Relief Fund and the Portland Area Artist Emergency Relief Fund. Literary Portland is not personally associated with either of the funds, so, please direct all questions etc. to their respective organizations.

Update 2: A “stay at home” order has been issued by Gov. Kate Brown. See also this FAQ from OPB. Until the order is lifted, you can assume all in-person readings and events have been cancelled. We’ll continue to update things to match organization and stores’ calendars etc., but heed Brown’s orders and updates from officials on proper actions. Hope you all can stay safe, healthy, and cozy with a good book at home!

Creatives and Cocktails: FUBU

November 8, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Kelly’s Olympian, 426 Southwest Washington St, Portland, OR 97204 + Google Map

Hey there!

I’d like to invite everyone to an open mic that Stay Litt will be hosting on November 8th.

We’ll begin with a reading, featuring Rachelle Dixon who has recently published Between Sweetness and Spice: A Vegan Culinary Journey Across the Continents.

The book is about their family’s culinary roots across the continents. Rachelle will read a few food stories from Between Sweetness and Spice and a sample recipe will be shared.

After their reading, other creatives are invited and encouraged to come up and share their work too!

Come make new friends!
