Soapbox time. I have written about Write Around Portland a lot. Because I love it and I believe in it so much. You'll not find a more inspiring place to be on Wednesday night, than the First United Methodist Church, where dozens of Write Around Portland participants will read their work from the new anthology, A Rare and Necessary Time. I know that it might seem drastic to say that this reading will change your life, but it also might seem true if you come.
You should check it out. You won't regret it.
From the Write Around Portland website:
