"I was 60 before I had the nerve to take a writing class. A dear friend told me about Portland Women Writer workshops. After a brief phone conversation with one of the facilitators, I decided to try because "never trying" would become my unhappy, unwritten story. From the first the workshop felt safe and welcoming. The facilitator's engaging, flexible exercises quickly proved I had nothing to fear. Through this workshop I discovered I could write. Then followed a bonus surprise - this workshop had shown me myself - my history, my stories, my ideas, my inner life - with more depth and vibrancy. I discovered deeper respect, compassion and pride for the life I'd lived."
