Oregon Writers Colony is grateful to our volunteers, donors, and supporters for helping us continue to support Northwest writers.

  • Maintaining a year-round home for writers
  • Coordinating inventive workshops open to both members and non-members
  • Providing free workshops for junior high students and the elderly
  • Hosting events that build and strengthen the writing community in Oregon

We work hard to keep out programs and other offerings affordable, including providing scholarships when possible.

If you share our vision, consider supporting the Oregon Writers Colony. We’re a growing non-profit, and every dollar counts.

You can support the work of Oregon Writers Colony in several ways.

Tell Your Friends

The easiest way to support the OWC is to tell your friends about us and encourage them to . This benefits you (more writing buddies), your friends (a new world of learning and writing retreat opportunities), and the OWC (more members means greater services). See Membership.


If you would like to play a stronger role in the vibrant community that is OWC, check out our Committees page. By taking an active part in planning and organizing events and other services of OWC, you’ll make wonderful contacts and deeper friendships with some of the writers who make OWC the community that it is.


The OWC special funds provide scholarships to writers with financial needs, and pay for maintenance and upgrades for Colonyhouse. See Donations.
