WRITING & THE BODY w/ Lidia Yuknavitch and Jen Pastiloff

October 14, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

View Venue Website, 510 SW 3rd Ave #101, Portland, OR 97204 + Google Map

Jennifer Pastiloff and Lidia Yuknavitch were running their infamous workshop four times a year before the pandemic hit. Covid-19 led to the cancellation of three of these in 2021…Lucky for us, we’re back! Jen & Lidia are both renowned in their fields in their own right, and both of them are known for their inventive, non-traditional methods. Together they lead you to your most creative place by tapping into your body first, and then picking up the pen. But don’t worry! You do not have to be a published or experienced writer or yogi- we are looking for people who have heart. You have a desire to write? You have a body? Then this weekend is for you.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to continued concerns about the spread of Covid-19 and its variants, proof of vaccination will be required in advance; you will be contacted by our Navigator, Daniel, in order to send him a photo/scan of your vaccination documentation. Attendees must be two weeks removed from their final vaccination as of no later than September 30th in order to attend. We apologize to anyone this excludes who has not yet been able to receive the vaccine (or has a health condition that precludes them from getting vaccinated), however we have collectively decided that requiring proof of vaccination is the safest way for us to move forward.

We are located in a beautiful historic building in downtown Portland. We are on bus lines, close to the Max line that goes to the airport as well as the Amtrak station. We are within walking distance to many hotels, some of our favorites being The Society Hotel ($), Embassy Suites ($$), Hotel Monaco ($$) and The Nines ($$$). With a bar, delicious burger joint, fresh salad bar in our building, a food truck lot out the front door, and Pine Street Market only a 3 block walk, food options abound.
