We’re The People’s Ink, an open, free and independent writers' community located in Portland, Oregon with over 45 active members.

We’re operated by writers and for writers, open to you, your friends, your family and any Portlander with a passion for writing, the written word and the writer's life.

We meet weekly in free venues in SE Portland to write, critique and have our writing critiqued. Our workshop formats include: randomized groups, focus groups, novel critique groups, poetry groups and discussion groups.

We're a community that fosters creative writing efforts and the completion of personal written projects – novels, short stories, poems, chapbooks, anthologies, scripts or essays.

Best of all, did we mention it's free?
