Sign up early for writing workshops here: classes are expected to sell out!
Advance passes are $15 (day-of passes increase to $20) for adults and include a $5 voucher to spend at the extensive book fair, and youth 17 and under or with high school ID attend FREE. All passes include admission to the Portland Art Museum.
