Brian Benson

Brian Benson grew up in northern Wisconsin, just outside a town with three bars and no stoplights. He now teaches creative writing at the Attic Institute and facilitates free Write Around Portland workshops in prisons, schools, and affordable housing. His memoir, Going Somewhere, (Plume, 2014) was a Powell’s New Favorite and Multnomah County Library Selection. In 2015, he co-produced The River Signal, a radio drama written and recorded during a riverboat trip down the Mississippi. Visit Brian online at brianbensonwrites.com.
