Free 90 minute Letter Writing Session with Wendy Noonan

Join us for an afternoon of personal writing in the company of others.  Sometimes the medium of *instant* messaging and emails  doesn’t do our deeper thoughts and feelings justice. If you would like to sit together in good company writing letters, Wendy will provide examples, strategies and prompts to inspire students to write from their intellect and feelings both. Pre-registration is required. Click on this link to register. Wendy Noonan’s poetry has appeared in many journals, including Painted Bride Quarterly, Muzzle, Crazy Horse and 2River View. Her creative nonfiction, forthcoming in Diagram, was also featured in Meridian Journal as one of two finalists for their 2020 Editor’s Choice prize. Wendy teaches at Pacific Northwest College of Art and tutors at Portland Community College.

Webinar: The Antifascist Artist

The Antifascist Artist: How can writers fight against right-wing extremism in the United States? In recent years right-wing extremist groups have specifically targeted Portland as a place to rally, recruit, and radicalize. How do communities fight back against hate on the local, national, and global level? And what role can art—in particular the written and spoken word—play in that fight? Portland authors Cari Luna, Maryam Gabriel-Imam, Janice Lee, Sophia Shalmiyev, and Leni Zumas will read from their work and then tackle this question in a panel discussion. This event is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council, through a project grant in support of Cari Luna’s ongoing research and writing about fascism.
