Our mission is to support the writing community of Astoria and the Lower Columbia, while fostering the unique literary arts in our region.
We are a guild of working writers who:
Love our craft and strive for excellence
Honor the past and build collaborations for the future
Approach our work with joy, courage, compassion, and empathy
Strive to help create a vibrant, inclusive arts community where kindred souls connect and dreams can happen
Reflect a river community, an estuary of people, writing and ideas
Connect readers and writers of all ages
We envision a thriving network of writers, helping and supporting each other. A place where diverse people can learn and feel inspired by the wonder of words. Where they can feel seen and find opportunities to do the work they love and be celebrated for it.
