Portland: Write Your Way to Meaning with Armin Tolentino

Portland Willamette Writers Header 2022

Willamette Writers Portland

Presents Writing Your Way to Meaning

with Armin Tolentino

Come and join us at our first in-person meeting at our new headquarters downtown: 1336 NW Flanders, Portland (Masks required). On Tuesday, October 4th at 7:00 PM, Clark County Poet Laureate Armin Tolentino will be speaking to us on Writing Your Way to Meaning.

A writing practice that focuses on language and play (rather than simply “finishing the manuscript”) can lead to surprise, wonder, and revelation for the author and reader alike. Join Armin Tolentino in a conversation where we’ll share tips on how to explore the unknown and unlock our imaginations.

Join us at 1336 NW Flanders: the new Headquarters for Willamette Writers. See you there!
