We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

Writing the Long Short Story

September 25 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

This class is ideal for writers looking to work on a long short story of 35 pages or more. The long short story is an interesting form, giving writers the elbow room to delineate their stories more deeply yet still staying devoted to the principles of the short story. For some writers, the long short story can be an excellent precursor to the novel. In this six-week intensive workshop, participants will read and analyze the work of storytellers and master writers working with the long short story while simultaneously working on their own long story. Participants are welcome to bring an existing story/work and develop it further during the session.
