Writers, escape the solitude of your desk. Readers, come hear great fresh work.
One Page Wednesday is a new series hosted by Natalie Serber. An opportunity to share or listen to one page of work in progress from talented Portland writers.
Come with a single page of work and sign up to read – or come to listen and prepare to be inspired! Please, no reading from electronic devices.
