A Benefit for Write Around Portland

Write Around Portland is at it again! We’re holding our annual word art and word games extravaganza on October 3rd.

From one word lover to another, I’d like to encourage you to attend. You’ll get to experience the power of writing in community and your support will ensure that the most isolated and financially insecure among us will have that same opportunity.

XY&Z is Write Around Portland’s annual celebration of words; this year it also commemorates our tenth year of writing in community. The evening is a word feast like no other, featuring classic word games, collaborative novellas created on old typewriters and a silent auction of journals and broadsides designed by local luminaries. And you won’t want to miss the signature cocktail at the hosted bar or the fabulous delights by Vibrant Table!

XY&Z will be held at Design Within Reach (1200 NW Everett) on Saturday, October 3, 7:30 – 10:00 PM. Tickets start at $50 and can be purchased on our website ( or by calling our office at 503.796.9224. As an extra bonus, every XY&Z ticket comes with a free event day pass for Wordstock’s bookfair.
