Writing Place: A Creative Writing Workshop Inspired by Ansel Adams in Our Time

May 23, 2021
10:00 am - 11:30 am

This program is free, but space is limited. Registration required.

What makes place a meaningful element in a story or poem? How do you relate to the landscapes of the American West? When you hear the word landscape, what do you imagine? What makes a place significant to you? Join Write Around Portland and the Portland Art Museum for an online creative writing workshop exploring setting, place, and landscape, and drawing inspiration from works in the Ansel Adams in Our Time photography exhibition.

Based on the acclaimed Write Around Portland model, refined over 22 years, this workshop provides 90 minutes of facilitated, generative writing exercises, sharing, and strengths-based feedback. Good for both new and experienced writers. Open to all, ages 16+. Writers ages 13-15 are welcome with a parent or guardian.

Please bring your favorite journal and pen to write with!
