A hearty thank you goes out to the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation, which has awarded Oregon Writers Colony a $5,000 grant! This money will help support OWC’s efforts to bring new services and events to our members. We have four more Literary Lounges coming up this year, and Stumptown Lit, our big festival for readers and writers, takes place Oct. 19 at the World Forestry Center. Plus, November is NaNoWriMo month at Colonyhouse! Stay tuned for details on flexible writing opportunities at our retreat house in November.
