Wordstock is coming soon!

Wordstock is coming!  Portland’s Festival of Words, October 3-6 at the Oregon Convention Center, is a weekend full of workshops, author presentations, book fairs, entertainment, vendors, and more. Since 2005, Portland has been celebrating the joy of words spoken, written or sung. There is a workshop track for K-12 teachers, a poetry slam, a literary ball, open-mic nights, author presentations and panels all over town, publishers and distributors looking for the next literary sensation, a short story contest, an area with activities and storytime just for kids, tables of books for sale, and tables of books for free.  It all wraps up with a taping of the hugely popular local radio show Live Wire.
